I saw a stat on facebook last night. Hit outs to advantage Melbourne are ranked no.1 326 (Gawn 303) every other club with all players combined are still less than Gawn's 303.

Key reason why Grundy is nowhere near as good a 'ruckman' as Gawn.
As good a footballer perhaps, but Gawn hands down the most dominant ruck in the game at what you want your ruckman to be doing

I think it’s underappreciated how much losing Gawn affected our season last year

Monstered West Coast today. BOG.
His tap work to advantage has been off the charts several times this year, and it's not just "to advantage", they are taps to players on the move. I can't remember in recent years any ruckman doing that so frequently and consistently. Now if the players who are benefiting from these taps would stop bombing it to 40 metres out from goal half the time it would look even better!

Loved the Clark Keating style spikes into space, worked to great advantage a couple of times. Nearly hit a wingman on the tit from memory.

Well deserved after putting in a hell of a preseason to get himself as fit as he's ever been. Onya Maxy! :thumbsu:

Funny on Sunday, I thought Lobb would test him cheating forward the whole game (Lobb was offering nothing defensively, was clearly instructed to try and run off Gawn as much as possible). Lobb started well too then Gawn just absolutely took him to the cleaners...
