Dominant performance Saturday

September 12, 2020
Gawn ended with 15 disposals (11 kicks, four handballs), four tackles and one mark in Saturday's 79-74 victory over the Giants.
ANALYSIS
Gawn dominated the ruck as the Demons kept their finals chances alive with a stirring five-point victory. The win not only moves them temporarily into the top-8 but it also leaves the Giants on the outside looking in when it comes to postseason footy. Gawn collected 44 hitouts to go with a game-high eight clearances, confirming his status as arguably the best ruckman in the game today.

Ready to return
RMelbourne Demons
August 25, 2020
Gawn (shoulder) will be back in action for Saturday's match versus St. Kilda, Ben Gibson of the Demons' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Gawn's absence was certainly against the Bulldogs, who dominated the Demons despite a solid effort from Braydon Preuss in the ruck, where he finished with a game-high 31 hitouts. Preuss isn't quite on Gawn's level elsewhere, however, as Gawn sits among the elite at his position in the league.
Out for Saturday
RMelbourne Demons
Shoulder
August 14, 2020
Gawn will not play in Saturday's match versus Collingwood due to a shoulder injury, Callum Twomey of AFL Media (via Melbourne's official site) reports.
ANALYSIS
Gawn was considered the big question mark for the Demons but was ultimately unable to get up in time for the contest. Braydon Preuss is set to handle the ruck duties in Gawn's absence.
Resting Sunday
RMelbourne Demons
Back
August 8, 2020
Gawn will be managed for Sunday's clash with the Kangaroos as he has reportedly been dealing with a tear in his shoulder/upper back that has been slowing him down as of late, Ben Sutton of AFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Although Gawn is dealing with what appears to be a partial tear in his shoulder/upper back area, the Demon captain has yet to miss a game all year. However, with the short gap in between games being just four days, it made the most sense for Gawn to rest and have some extra time to heal up in preparation for next Saturday's matchup with Collingwood.
Logs 40 hitouts in loss
RMelbourne Demons
July 30, 2020
Gawn collected 40 hitouts and 11 disposals (nine kicks, two handballs) during Thursday's 83-32 loss to Port Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Gawn reached 40 hitouts for the second straight match but this time it ended in defeat as the rest of the team made errors all night. After losing against the two best clubs in the Premiership, Gawn will next face two of the worst in Adelaide and North Melbourne.
Dominates despite loss
RMelbourne Demons
July 26, 2020
Gawn logged 41 hitouts and collected 13 disposals (eight kicks, five handballs) during Sunday's 53-49 loss to Brisbane.
ANALYSIS
Gawn is justifying his price tag through hugely impressive performance against one of the top teams in the Premiership. If he can do something like this to Brisbane, he should have no problems facing another strong club in Port Adelaide in the next Round.
