A former UC Championship player for Timaru Boys’ High School, Grace represented New Zealand Secondary Schools’, Canterbury Under 19, and the New Zealand Under 20 side. He was also a member of the Crusaders Academy. 

The Hawera-born loose forward can also play lock, and debuted for Canterbury in the 2019 Mitre 10 Cup.
