It was the season that saw five years of incredible persistence finally pay off for Griffin.

Griffin had played just one NRL game in three seasons prior to 2017 but earned his way into Craig Bellamy’s team to feature in 14 games and become a premiership player with the Club.

Griffin did not play his first game until Round 13 during the Origin period but missed just two games for the remainder of the year.

The 26-year-old utility proved to be an asset off the bench for Melbourne, providing an impact up the middle late in games.

He was a tackling machine, sticking 93 per cent of his tackles, the second best at Storm behind only Jordan McLean and averaging a tackle every 90 seconds when he was on the field.

After enduring three knee reconstructions in four years, a premiership ring was the perfect reward for Griffin’s remarkable courage and determination.

Despite not being a Storm player in 2018, he will always be remembered as a player who gave everything he had to pull on the purple jersey.
