Robbie Gray has taken on a new role at Port Adelaide following his retirement at the conclusion of the 2022 season.

Gray, who played 271 games for the Power across his 16-year career, is set to remain at the club in a recruiting and list management role, tracking South Australian and national junior talent.

The 34-year-old won three club best and fairest's during his time at the Power, but took an interest in the recruiting side of the football business during his final few years as a player.

Gray attended the 2022 NAB AFL Draft Combine alongside the Port Adelaide team earlier this month as he begins his transition into the role.

“I've always been interested in recruiting and list management so I'm really grateful to get the opportunity to move into that space,” Gray said.

“I'm excited about having the chance to work with Jason, Geoff and the team to help add to the exciting talent we already have at the club.”

Chris Davies, Port's general manager of football, said Gray had an "eye for talent" and welcomed him to the team.

“Our List Management and Recruiting team, led by Jason Cripps, are an experienced and talented group and we look forward to Rob's continuing contribution to the team,” Davis said.

“Rob has an eye for talent, sees the game better than most and knows what it takes to succeed at the highest level. I have no doubt he'll be great at this too.”
