Cape Town - Former Stormers
flyhalf Peter Grant has set his sights on winning the Super Rugby title with
the Western Force.
Grant, who earned 104 Super
Rugby caps during an eight-year career at the Stormers, joined the Australian
franchise in the off-season after spending a season at La Rochelle in France.
The Force finished bottom of
the Super Rugby standings last year, but Grant insists that a change in
approach at the Perth-based side could bring about a change in fortunes.
“It was a great experience I
had at the Stormers,” Grant told Fox Sports. “It was a good career there but
the change was good for me.
“My goal is to do well here
at the Western Force. I haven’t won a championship
with Super Rugby. I’ve played in a final but I haven’t won it, so there’s that
achievement I’m aiming for.
“The preparation that we’re
putting in our pre-season, we haven’t been training to be second best, so we
all believe that we have a fighting chance to be in those playoffs and that’s
the attitude we’ve gone on.”
According to Grant, the Force will
adopt an attractive, exciting brand of rugby - which is suitable for his style
The 31-year-old Grant played
five Tests for the Springboks between 2007 and 2008.
