|Rugby union career|
Educated at Gresham's School in Holt, Norfolk, he played rugby there alongside brothers Ben and Tom Youngs, and Ben Pienaar, who are all now at the Leicester Tigers. As a gifted athlete, Grant went to the National Prep School Finals for the long jump, he also broke the school triple jump record when he was 17 with a distance of 13.03 metres.
When studying Architectural Engineering and Design Management at Loughborough University, Grant proved himself something of a points machine during the students' National League Three North campaign, scoring 130 points, 7 tries, 25 conversions and 15 penalties in 17 matches.
His prowess was also recognised at national level, proving himself to be a match winner for the England Students on more than one occasion.
In February 2009, his injury–time try beat Irish Colleges and a month later he scored all the points, two tries, a conversion and a penalty as England beat France Universities 15-13.
He joined the Northampton Saints Senior Academy in 2009, playing then as a full-back/wing and was named in the squad to play the Ospreys in the LV Cup. He was also selected in the squad for a 2008–09 Guinness Premiership match against Bath.
Grant signed for the Cornish Pirates at the end of May 2010, at the same time as prop James Currie. Grant proved a big hit in his first season with the Pirates, he displayed power and pace, making 30 appearances mainly on the wing and showed he could also kick a ball a fair old distance.
In total he crossed for 10 tries, 8 RFU Championship, one cup and one friendly and was unlucky to miss out on the end of season semi-final and two–legged final matches, having had to undergo an appendicitis operation.
