Shaun Grigg Biography

Saturday, 26 May 2018
Shaun Grigg will play in his 200th game this week.

"Flexibility in my game is one of my strengths. I can play a variety of positions," Grigg said.

"I probably don't have an out-and-out strength. I just rely on my footy smarts and versatility."

Friday, 31 March 2017
The AFL's much-discussed 'third man up' rule is set to be debated again after Richmond midfielder Shaun Grigg successfully introduced a potential new tactic.

Grigg sneakily won a free kick and slotted a crucial goal with the tactic midway through the fourth quarter of Thursday night's 19-point win over Collingwood.

The umpire paid a free kick against Grigg's bemused Magpie opponent Brayden Maynard for "blocking" and explained the Tiger had nominated himself for the ruck.

Magpies skipper Scott Pendlebury told 3AW post-match he was concerned about the Tiger tactic.

"I don't think we want to get the game looking like that," Pendlebury said.

"All sides will see that tonight and think they can take advantage of that. Every side will think, 'Gee, we might be able to steal one if we can do this'. It might happen."

Wednesday, 24 August 2016
Shaun Grigg re-signs with Richmond to play on in 2017.
Thursday, 10 March 2016
Richmond's round one preparations have been thrown into a tailspin after four key players suffered injuries in the Tigers' 48-point NAB Challenge loss to Port Adelaide.

The Tigers were left licking their wounds at Etihad Stadium as Shane Edwards, Shaun Grigg, Reece Conca and Jacob Townsend were all cut down.

Edwards suffered an apparent collarbone injury at the end of the first quarter and was sent for scans with his left arm in a sling.

Grigg then suffered a hand injury while Townsend left the ground on a stretcher after leading with his head to tackle Hamish Hartlett.

Conca suffered his fourth hamstring injury in the past 12 month.

Thursday, 28 May 2015
Tigers' coach Damien Hardwick says returning to a familiar 'inside' role has Richmond midfielder Shaun Grigg in career-best form.

"We've moved him back into his natural role, which has been inside, and his contested ball numbers have risen, his ability to win clearances has been outstanding," Hardwick said.

"Overall, you ask Shaun where his best footy is played and it is in the middle.

"That is why we got him across from Carlton and we have managed to slot him back in there. He has performed really well."

Thursday, 15 August 2013
Shaun Grigg signs a two-year contract extension with Richmond, keeping him at the Tigers until the end of 2015.

"He has become an important member of the team with his ability to find space and use the ball efficiently, as well as providing valuable leadership skills to the playing group, " Richardson said.


"We would like to acknowledge Shaun's management team, led by Alex McDonald, for the professional manner in which the discussions were conducted."

Friday, 12 November 2010
New Richmond midfielder Shaun Grigg says he wants to play a prominent role in Richmond's midfield in 2011.

"I focused in the second half of the year on score assists, and that is one of the things I keep an eye out for, so definitely going inside 50 I want to be able to hurt teams," he told the Herald Sun.

"I am working hard at training and want to give the Tigers midfielders a chop out, whether it's inside or outside on the wing. If the coach wants me to pinch-hit in the backline or whatever, I will do what he wants."

Saturday, 9 October 2010
Carlton midfielder Shaun Grigg has become a Tiger in a straight swap for Andrew Collins.

"We believe Shaun will be a good fit for our side," Richmond's general manager of football, Craig Cameron, said.

"He's got a bit of size for a midfielder, is hard at it, and has a really good engine, which will help us next year with the changes to the interchange system."

Carlton's football manager Steven Icke says the Blues are equally happy with the trade.

"It's pleasing to have a young player who is looking forward to playing for the Carlton Football Club and being a part of our exciting future," Icke said.

"There is a real Carlton connection as not only was Andrew recruited from Bendigo, the home of many Carlton greats, he is also the nephew of Peter Francis, who played in Carlton's 1979 premiership team."

Wednesday, 6 October 2010
Carlton midfielder Shaun Grigg is determined to win a transfer to Richmond, his manager Alex McDonald says.

"He spoke to both the coach (Brett Ratten) and to Steven Icke last week and told them that he wanted to go to Richmond," McDonald said.

"Unless Shaun advises me otherwise, nothing's changed. At this stage he's 100 per cent committed to Richmond."

Friday, 1 October 2010
Richmond hopes to add Shaun Grigg to its line-up during next week's official trade period after the Blue announced he wanted out of Visy Park.

"We've had a chat to Shaun," Richmond recruiting manager Francis Jackson said.

"We think he's got lots of exciting traits and perhaps hasn't played the best he possibly could have, for one reason or another, over the past 12 months."

Midfielder Shaun Grigg informs the Blue that he wants to be traded just moments after Carlton chief executive Greg Swann said that the club was close to re-signing him.

"We are disappointed with Shaun's request to seek opportunities elsewhere in 2011," football manager Steven Icke said.

"The club will now pursue all options during the exchange period to ensure the best possible outcome for the Carlton Football Club."

Wednesday, 1 April 2009
There will be some lively discussions around the Carlton selection table this week with Brett Ratten loathe to change a winning combination despite the availability of first-round absentees Shaun Grigg and Andrew Walker.

"That might be the debate to maybe have to tell Grigg and Walker that they're not in. That's the conundrum," Ratten said.
