Jack Gunston is a versatile forward with elite running power that was drafted by the Adelaide Crows with the 29th selection in the 2009 AFL Draft.
After two years at the Crows where he managed to kick 20 goals from just 14 games, the sharp shooter requested a trade to Hawthorn following the 2011 season.
Gunston stepped straight into the Hawks line up in 2012 playing 19 games and kicking 39 goals helping the Hawks reach the Grand Final. Remarkably that year would be the first of four Grand Final appearances in a row that Gunston would play in, winning 2013, 2014 and 2015. A big game performer Gunston kicked 12 goals across his four grand final appearances and make the All-Australian team in the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Having now played 172 games and kick 341 goals Gunston is now starting to add more dynamics to his game, playing half back and moving through the midfield. Another strong pre-season will see Gunston once again play a number of roles for the Hawks in season 2019.
