Tim Grant (born 17 February 1988 in Penrith, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Wests Tigers in the National Rugby League. A New South Wales State of Origin representative, he plays at prop and previously played for the Penrith Panthers and South Sydney Rabbitohs.

Playing career[edit]

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]

Early in the 2014 NRL season Grant was relegated to the New South Wales Cup and was informed by Penrith to find a new club, despite having two years left on his contract. Although the club later changed its tune, Grant finalised a move to the South Sydney Rabbitohs in April 2014, signing a 4-year contract.[2]

On 8 January 2016, Grant signed a 2-year contract with the Wests Tigers starting effective immediately, after being granted a release from the final 3 years of his Rabbitohs contract.[3]
