    Wrong. Nathan Jones from Melbourne was nominated in 06 and 07

    Anyway, I have said it since day dot, Gray will be the pick of our super draft.

    Signing him (as well as Boak and Krakouer) to long term contracts should be a priority for the club.

    Yeah players can be nominated twice. Quote from the official AFL website:
    Robbie Gray is a quality player and has proven he should have been taken earlier in the draft. :)

    Quality indeed but his career may come to nothing if he can't stay injury free. In which case those who passed him by will be vindicated. I very much want him to stay fit and play a lot of games in 2008. Our own Garry Ablett Jnr.

    Yes there's some information on Robbie Gray in the training threads on this board. There's a few pics of him there too.

    Robbie at training late Jan 08. He's been doing some specialised work and lap running in the late January training sessions (as well as competitive work), but no reported injuries so that might've been a niggle or they're just keeping him fresh. Should be playing in the internal trial today (Saturday 9 Feb).

    Re: Dream Team League

    Is Robbie expected to play Rnd 1? I've heard he's had an outstanding pre-season, and I was definately impressed with what I saw last year.

    Cheers

    I'd expect him to get plenty of game time this year. As for playing round 1, your guess is as good as mine. You'll know before lockout though ;)

    Don't matter, I've replaced him in my DT now.

    I hope that doesn't come back to bite my ass!

    football is like a TV show - one minute your in and a hero and next time you are out and the villain. It is a pressure game and tough game both mentally and physically

    Re: 17 Robert Gray

    Play him in the midfield.

    Now.

    Gray + Boak = our future gut busters.
