The medium-forward kicked 57 goals for the year to be Hawthorn’s leading goalkicker, an impressive performance given a dislocated finger sustained early in the season, which required him to wear a glove for the rest of the year. It affected his ball drop and therefore his accuracy, but his huge tank and footy smarts ensured he was a still a major contributor. Gunston hurt his ankle in the qualifying final but returned for the Grand Final where he dominated with four goals. He must be pinching himself at his good fortune since leaving the Crows, with four Grand Finals and three flags.

Player honours: All-Australian nominee 2014, 2015; leading goalkicker 2015; premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015. Brownlow Medal: 2015 votes 7; career votes 14.
