Gunston is the complete footballer and is coming off arguably his best season with the club. He kicked 51 goals, the fourth time in five years he has finished with at least that many. The decision by Alastair Clarkson to move him to the backline in 2017 reaped enormous dividends because he is a versatile weapon, who is blessed with a huge tank, footy smarts and excellent disposal and can be deployed almost anywhere across the ground. After knocking on the door for a few seasons, he was rewarded with All-Australian selection in 2018 and signed a three-year contract extension that keeps him at the club until the end of 2022. A potential captain.
