There has been some confusion regarding the true identity of Frank Gray. Wikipedia has a bio which refers to him as Frank Gray, brother of well known Glebe rugby league player Bert Gray. There was a Frank Gray who was a younger brother of the Glebe rugby league player Bert Gray. However, that Frank Gray  was born in 1905 and would be too young to have played for Wests in 1920.

Wests Heritage List recorded player #198 as T. Gray, while the Rugby League Project recorded this player as Frank Gray. David Middleton the noted Rugby League Historian has provided information on this player. He noted that Frank Gray who played for Wests in 1920 and St George, at least in the early 1920’s was not related to the Gray brothers who played with Glebe. However the story of Frank Gray is complicated and it is easy to understand why there is confusion.
