Grant started playing rugby aged 7 at Broadstreet RFC, Coventry. He has also played at Old Coventrians RFC, Kenilworth RFC & Hartpury College RFC where he also represented Warwickshire age groups, 1st XV and Midlands U20s

Grant joined Bournemouth after relocating to the area for work in 2014. I had previously been contacted whilst at University in early 2013 by the then Bournemouth Director of Rugby and I found myself here 12 months later.

Grant may well pass 700 points this coming weekend. Only the third Bournemouth player (in the league) to do so after Sam Hardcastle (953) and Dan Pollard (720).

We asked Grant what he enjoys about Bournemouth Rugby

''For me, playing at Bournemouth allows me to play at a decent standard alongside work life, but most of all the bond between all at Bournemouth Rugby makes it feel like one huge family.

I'm lucky enough to be sponsored by Jon Sanchez and his company Sanchez Drying & Plastering which is massively flattering especially as he is a bloke who I know and respect a great deal. For me it's outstanding to be able to have my sponsor directly input and feedback upon my on field performances and I value his feedback tremendously. Jon is a guy who I played with during my first season at the club and his rugby knowledge was and still is second to none. I hope that he will continue coaching at Bournemouth for the duration of my career and beyond, impacting upon others like he has me! Massive thank you Sanch!''
