Player Bio

AT A Glance

Junior Clubs: Sandringham Dragons
Clubs:-
Debut: AFL 2010 ( Hawthorn 2012 )
Recruited from: Sandringham U18/Adelaide
Brownlow Votes:-

Gunston’s talent had been clear to all for some time, but he announced himself as a genuine star with a brilliant 2013 finals series. The former Crow booted 11 goals in three finals, including four in the premiership decider, missing out on the Norm Smith Medal by just one vote. He was compensated with Hawthorn’s best finals player award and equal eighth place in the best and fairest. Finishing the year with 46 goals, Gunston will become even more important this season given Lance Franklin’s departure. He boasts a sure pair of hands, impressive agility and endurance for his height, and one of the most reliable set-shot routines in the AFL.

Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Adelaide) no. 29 overall; 2011 NAb AFL Draft traded by Adelaide for selection no. 24, no. 46 and no. 64.
