Vale Grant Opie
 

 

In 2007 a number of ex Blue Mountains Grammar students ventured on down to Lapstone Oval and Grant Opie was one of these. Grant pulled on the double blue jumper on 88 occasions mainly in his preferred position of flanker.

 

Grant entertained the Blueys crowd with his tenacious defence and never say die attitude. Size was no object and every time Grant ran onto the field his presence lifted the entire team.

 

It did not take grant long to cement a permanent place in the Blueys 1st Grade outfit.

 

Grant’s most noticeable achievement was being a member of the Blueys all conquering 2011

 1st Grade Premiership side and he won the Dave Mackie Trophy for 2011 Best & Fairest in 1st Grade, his fellow players also voted him 2011 1st Grade 2011 players player. 

 

Grant was a true gentleman and will be sadly missed by all his mates at Blue Mountains Rugby.
