James Grant to speak at Sport's Awards dinner

Former Rugby Union International James Grant is the guest speaker at this year’s annual sports award’s dinner on Saturday October 21.

Mr Grant played in five Tests with the Wallabies and toured with them in 1988. The following year he switched codes to play with Balmain and was a try-scorer in the losing grand final against Canberra in extra time.

Grant left Balmain in 1992 to play for Hull in England and returned in 1995 to play for the Western Reds for one season. 

Following his retirement he acted as a Country NSW development officer. 

Tickets for the sports awards dinner are available from Newman’s Service Centre in Adelaide Street. Tickets are $40 for an adult and $15 for under 18’s.
