With the retirement of Panthers hooker Peter Wallace, there was a vacancy at Penrith for the role of “veteran Panthers junior and former representative player”. That role has now been filled.
The Panthers have today announced the signing of Tigers prop Tim Grant for 2019, on a one-year deal.
Grant’s return to the foot of the mountains has been speculated for over a year, and his return will give him the opportunity to end his career back where it all began.
After an outstanding Origin debut, Grant’s career never hit the heights many expected when he left Penrith for the Rabbitohs in 2015, and he’ll be hoping that a return to Mulgoa Rd helps rekindle some of his old form.
Grant has played 189 first grade games for the Tigers, Rabbitohs and Panthers, and 2 Origins for New South Wales.
