Port Adelaide Recruit Says He Hung Up On His Brother After He Was Drafted

Nov 26, 2018


Port Adelaide draft pick Riley Grundy says he had to screen a call from his brother, Collingwood ruckman Brodie, when he was selected in last week’s AFL Draft.

“Brodie was one of the first people to call me but I had to decline his call to answer Ken [Hinkley]’s,” Rilesy said on Monday.

“I don’t think he liked that too much.

“But I'm so stoked to be staying in Adelaide and to get the opportunity to play for Port.

“But I do owe Brodie a lot. He’s helped me on my journey and allowed me to visit Collingwood when he would train which gave me an insight in to what it means to be an AFL footballer, which a lot of people don’t get.

“I felt I was very privileged to be able to see my brother go through the AFL system before me.”
