Robbie Gray was drafted to the Port Adelaide Football Club with the 55th pick in the 2006 AFL Draft. The elusive midfielder/small forward has show he is capable of finding plenty of the footy as an elite midfielder but can also hit the scoreboard as a dangerous small forward.
Gray showed his goal scoring ability in just his third game, booting four goals against the Bombers from just 11 disposals. Unfortunately a mixture of soft tissue injuries throughout his early career and an ACL tear at the start of the 2012 season would restrict Gray from playing consistent football. In the games he did play Gray showed that he had the class to become one of the elite players in the competition.
After 364 days, Gray returned in 2013 to play 20 games for the power which would be a building block to becoming one of the best forwards in the game. From 2014-2018 Gray would go on to average 21.8 games a year and kick 35.0 goals a year which would result in winning 3x John Cahill medals and four All-Australian selections.
Gray enters 2019 with another strong pre-season under his belt which has seen him play more midfield minutes than previous seasons. Always the team man, Gray will be striving to see Port Adelaide return to finals action this year.
