PORT ADELAIDE has elected not to challenge a fine handed to forward Robbie Gray after the side’s 54-point win over Essendon on Saturday.

Gray was charged with rough conduct on Bomber Zach Merrett in the last quarter of the game at Adelaide Oval.

The offence was deemed by the MRO to be careless, with high contact but low impact.

Gray was offered a $2000 fine if he pleaded guilty to the charge early and the club has accepted the charge and fine.

It means the 32-year-old is free to play against West Coast in Perth on Saturday night.
