Jack Gunston Career
In the ninth round of the 2010 AFL season, Gunston played his first AFL game against the Brisbane Lions. Gunston had a strong debut, collecting seven rebounds and kicking a crucial goal in the dying minutes.
In round 18 versus Richmond, he participated in one more game and recorded nine disposals. He played the wing position for Central District’s 2010 championship team.
He participated in 12 games in 2011 and scored five goals versus Richmond in round 23. Gunston spent two years in Adelaide before feeling homesick and wanting to go back to Victoria. He declined to play for Central District in the championship game, opting instead to head back to Victoria before the SANFL season was over.
As the club’s finest young player, Adelaide had given him the Mark Bickley accolade; however, after expressing his plan to depart, the accolade was revoked.
In exchange for his services, Hawthorn received two draft picks (picks 53 and 71) while Adelaide received three picks (picks 24, 46, and 64).
He played in 19 games during his debut year at Hawthorn, including the 2012 Grand Final, and then 23 games in 2013.
Gunston participated in the 2013 Grand Final match against Fremantle and was one of the greatest players on the field. He scored 4 goals, which made him the game’s top scorer, and he came in second place to teammate Brian Lake in the voting for the Norm Smith Medal.
In 2014, Gunston played a crucial role as a key forward. He finished the season with a career-high 58 goals, winning his second championship as Hawthorn won the Grand Final.
Gunston scored 57 goals for Hawthorn in 2015, making him the team’s top goal scorer. He suffered a knee injury during the Qualifying Final against the West Coast Eagles, but he played in the Grand Final and kicked four goals as Hawthorn defeated the Eagles once more to complete a hat trick.
In 2016, Gunston was obliged to assume new responsibilities as a result of Jarryd Roughead’s season-ending injury, occasionally switching to the center position. Regardless, he scored 51 goals over the finals and the home-and-away season and was largely considered to be in good shape.
Gunston had a disappointing start to 2017, scoring relatively few goals. Gunston was shifted into the backline, where he considerably improved his play, as a result of both this and the significant number of injuries sustained by Hawthorn’s main defenders.
For 2018, Gunston was reinstated to the forward line. He was in good shape and teamed up with Luke Breust in the forward position. Together, they scored 105 goals. With 48 goals personally scored, Gunston tied for sixth place in the Coleman Medal.
Gunston’s appointment as vice-captain with new captain Ben Stratton was announced in February 2019. With only a combined total of 60 goals between them, his forward tandem with Breust was less successful than it had been the season before, and Hawthorn failed to make the finals.
Gunston played in just one game for the majority of the 2021 season. He sustained a back ailment that necessitated surgery, and then the injury made an early comeback and recurred, necessitating more surgery to address the problem.

Gunston finished the 2022 season at full strength, scoring 32 goals from 16 games, and was classified as ‘above average’ for marks inside the 50, goals, and score involvements.
During his tenure at Hawthorn, he received 47 votes for the Brownlow Medal.
Gunston stated his intention to sign with the Brisbane Lions as a free agent after the 2022 AFL season.
Gunston was eventually acquired by the Lions on October 11 in exchange for an AFL draft choice 48 and a future fourth-round selection, but the Lions first attempted to trade for him in order to avoid reducing their free agency compensation for losing Daniel McStay.
