Grundy signs for seven

COLLINGWOOD ruckman Brodie Grundy has turned his back on free agency to re-sign with the AFL club for seven years.

Grundy would have become a free agent at the end of the 2020 season and had been linked to a return to his home state of South Australia but instead committed to the Magpies until the end of 2027.

“I took my time to consider all of the things that mean the most to me – my football, my ambitions, my life beyond the game, my family, friends, team-mates and the football club – and settled on what I believe is best for all of those relationships, needs and passions,” Grundy said.
