Wholesome story:

last year I went to some meet and photo thingy at a sporting memorabilia store at Southland with Jack, Grigg and Rance. There were heaps of people and I wasn't expecting much more than a g'day, photo, and move on. In front of me was a family with a few kids and Rance was fantastic with them. The photographer was trying to keep on schedule but Rance was having none of it and made all the kids give him a high five. Next was my turn. I'm pretty quiet and introverted and didn't expect anything at all from the guys. Jack was trying with everyone but I think he was a little overwhelmed or isn't a people person either. That's cool, I still got a nod and a hello. Rance was Rance, biggest grin, huge hand shake and really welcoming. But it was Grigg that made me feel the most comfortable. He was so chill, asked me how I was going, and when I was nervous about squishing in between the guys it was Grigg who put his arm around my shoulder, dragged me in, and he has the biggest smile in the photo. As I started to leave assuming the next people would have their turn, Grigg speaks up and yells out to me thanks for coming and to have a great night. The entire experience lasted for no more than two minutes probably but Grigg made it quite memorable. That photo is now hanging on a wall at my dad's house.

Thanks Grigga, for helping bring our club our 11th Premiership.It also shows how selfless he is in retiring before mid-season, so we can add much needed depth to the team. Wish him all the best in his future endeavours. Will also be remembered as a premiership player with the Tige's forever in our history.
