Richmond premiership hero Shaun Grigg is considering his retirement as he continues to battle with injury this season.

The 31-year-old hasn’t played so far in 2019, and is still out indefinitely with knee and hip issues.

According to Herald Sun journalist Jon Ralph, the Tiger could call time on his career in the coming days, to give Richmond a selection in the mid-season draft.

“He’s seriously considering retirement mid-season,” Ralph told AFL Tonight.

“He doesn’t feel like he could get to the end of the season and play meaningful football.

“The result of this is that they would have a mid-season draft pick.”

Grigg would need to officially announce his retirement before May 27, in order for the Tigers to have a free list spot for the mid-season draft.

The midfielder joined the Tigers in 2011, and played 171 games for the club, including all 25 in their premiership-winning season.
