YELLOW AND BLACK IN THE FAMILY
BRIGHT’S Liz and Don Grimes couldn’t be more proud of their grandson Dylan Grimes who played in Richmond’s first AFL premiership in 37 years when they defeated Adelaide at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.
Grimes was one of the Tigers’ best players in the 48-point victory over the more fancied Crows with the 26 year-old limiting All-Australian small forward Eddie Betts to just seven disposals and a goal.
On Monday night Grimes finished fifth in the club’s best and fairest count with 69 votes.
He had a stellar season averaging 10.6 disposals and three tackles per game.
Grimes finished behind Dustin Martin who took out the first place Jack Dyer Medal with 89 votes, adding to his string of awards including the Brownlow and Norm Smith medals.
