FORMER Warrington player John Grant will head up a new commission running rugby league in Australia.

The IT guru has been named chairman of the eight man indepedent commission set up to run the Australian National Rugby League.

Grant played for Warrington in their last table topping team of 1972/73. The bearded threequarter from Brisbane Souths played 10 matches for Warrington, scoring four tries. He made a try-scoring debut in the centre against Huddersfield on December 3, 1972, in a 28-5 victory at Wilderspool.

He played in the next five matches, before a hamstring injury kept him out for a month. He made his comeback in the Challenge Cup quarter final loss to Featherstone. The 14-18 defeat at Wilderspool was the only loss that Grant suffered in his time at Warrington. He played three further matches before returning home to Australia at the end of March.
