Port Adelaide star Robbie Gray says Collingwood forward Jaidyn Stephenson’s suspension is a “wake-up call” for the industry as a whole.

Stephenson, 20, was banned for 22 weeks (12 suspended) as well as being handed a $20,000 fine after placing multi bets on games involving the Magpies.

Gray says the Power players were addressed about the seriousness of gambling after Stephenson was handed the sanction.

“We had a little bit of a chat about it, not too much though,” he told SEN SA Breakfast.

“Most guys are across it and know the rules around it and it’s pretty clear.

“It’s pretty obvious, I would’ve thought.

“You look at something like that and I suppose that’s a bit of a wake-up call for everyone across the AFL.

“If they weren’t really clear on it, I’m sure they are now.”

Gray and the Power will aim to back up their 11-point win over Geelong when they host the Western Bulldogs at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.
