For mine Harry Grant when on the field this year has been nothing short of special! Talk about passing the eye test.
If you had Harry, Cleary and Turbo behind a decent forward pack it would be like nothing we have seen before.
Harry put 98 points on the Chooks in just his second game of the year… in 47 minutes!!
Unfortunately a hamstring kept him out over the Origin period and then Harry aggravated it a couple of games later. This is the disclaimer with Harry. If you want him, make sure you have a decent backup hooker in case he goes down. Or a spare trade.
Breaking down the numbers, Grant has averaged 74 points per game (PPG) in 55 minutes per game (MPG) which is insane.
That equates to an average of 108PPG if you stretch it to 80 minutes! Now I’m unsure if Bellyache is looking to build Harry towards 80 minutes before finals, but gee that’s exciting numbers considering the lack of scoring power at hooker lately.
Even if he plays 60 minutes a game we are looking at around an average of 80 odd and if he stays healthy I can only see him getting better.
Further, there is going to be a game where he truly dominates if Melbourne are in the mood! Hopefully it’s the back end of this season and it all clicks.
As mentioned the only risk is injury and of course playing for Melbourne he may be rested in one the the last two weeks. Time will tell but there are the numbers for you on the legend that is Harry Grant.
Oh and I should mention he is a massive POD and owning him brings a whole bloody lot of good vibes when he is on the field! Get on if you can..
