Just a Game
- Aug 28, 2010
Surely he’s too small to be a decent second row?The evolution of Harry Grant has been tremendous to watch. His form in 2018-2019 was outstanding but he still had limitations particularly in 2018.
I thought he was a second rower playing hooker, he was robust and had a beautiful pass a bit like S. Walters but he attacked like a second rower. I thought his future might be away from hooker.
That probably helped him last night, he played two roles and did them both well.
Then 2019 and his attack under Eric Smith went to another level he went from five try assists to 21. He maintained his excellent defence but added 30m a game to his attack and nearly got it to 100m a game. Improving from eight tries to 14 but the assists were the big one.
He became a very good 'red flag' player. He knew when to run and how to run. To come off the bench last night and play two roles and sum up the situation straight away and have a massive impact was unbelievable.
Four players from Hodges' Under 20's team in 2018 made their debut this year- Brimson, Grant, Tino and Allan. Carrigan was captain.
In that Under 20's camp and the two years of ISC I had a lot to do with Grant and he was just a champion and still is, I spoke to him this week and he is just great to have around teams he is going to be a Queensland leader.
