Port Power superstar hangs up his boots

After 270 games with Port Adelaide, Robbie Gray has today announced his final game will be this weekend’s showdown against the Crows.

After 16 seasons, Port Adelaide superstar Robbie Gray will lace up his boots for the final time this weekend, announcing his retirement from the sport earlier today.

The 34-year-old has played 270 games so far for the Power with an impressive resume reflecting his time at the club. Joining the club in the 2006 draft at pick 55, he’s since been a three-time John Cahill Medallist, four-time All Australian, five show-down medals and 365 goals.  Gray sits fourth on Port’s all-time games list and has kicked the team’s second highest goal tally sitting behind Warren Tredrea on 365.

Speculation about the veteran’s future has been circling over the past few weeks with Gray informing his teammates today that his final game would be against the Crows this weekend. The match is a fitting finale to his illustrious career and will see the midfielder fight for his sixth Showdown Medal – he is currently the all-time leader sitting at 5.

Port Adelaide takes on Adelaide this weekend in a primetime clash on Saturday night. Port has won four of the last five meetings between the two rival clubs and is going in hot favourites in what could be the perfect ending for the star player.
