Tim Grant (born 17 February 1988 in Penrith, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Penrith Panthers of the NRL. A New South Wales State of Origin representative front-row forward, he has played his entire career to date with the Panthers.

Grant started his NRL career in 2007. He made his representative début for the City New South Wales team in the 2011 City vs Country Origin match.

Grant was selected to make his début for the New South Wales Blues in the 2012 State of Origin series' second game. He took the first hit-up of the match and was seen as contributing well to the Blues's victory.[1] also played in the third and deciding game, which was won by Queensland, claiming their seventh consecutive series.

Early in the 2014 NRL season Grant was informed by Penrith to find a new club despite having two years remaining on his contract and was also relegated to the New South Wales Cup. Despite the club later changing its tune regarding his leaving, Grant finalised a move to the South Sydney Rabbitohs in April.[2]
