    Grant: I owe it to Stormers

    2013-05-28 13:35
    Cape Town - Peter Grant wants to finish his Stormers career on a high and is therefore looking for a new deal with the Cape side.

    The flyhalf has missed most of the 2013 Super Rugby season due to an ankle ligament injury, and feels he owes the team one more season.

    French giants Stade Francais were interested in the 28-year-old's services but they have since signed Springbok and Bulls pivot Morné Steyn, which means it is likely that Grant will turn out in the blue and white hoops in 2014.

    "I am busy chatting with Western Province and the Stormers again," Grant told the Cape Times.

    "The chances are pretty good that I could stay. I'm not too sure if it will be the same deal like in the last few years where I've gone back to Japan (to play for the Kobe Steelers). We will have to see what they (WP) put on the table, what the plans are.

    "Also, I've only signed with the Japanese for one more year, and I have have no idea whether they would want me back there," said Grant, who nowadays represents himself as a free agent.

    "I'm pretty much keeping my options open, but I'm happy in the Cape. I kind of owe them a season now after what happened this season. It (injury) is not the way I'd like to finish off my time in Cape Town, that's for sure," continued Grant.

    Grant will not be ready for the Stormers' Super Rugby clash against the Kings at Newlands on Saturday, with a more realistic date being after the June Test break.
