Another 130-point performance
RMelbourne Demons
April 11, 2021
Gawn scored one goal to go with 23 disposals (16 kicks, seven handballs), six marks made and 41 hitouts recorded in Sunday's 85-60 win over Geelong.
ANALYSIS
Gawn scored his third goal of the season and topped 40 hitouts for the second time as he recorded more than 130 points in back-to-back weeks. If the Demons can keep up their impressive pace to start the season, look for Gawn to continue to thrive, though he has yet to play a truly tough opponent so far.

Hugely impressive in win
RMelbourne Demons
April 4, 2021
Gawn scored two goals and two behinds to go with 24 disposals (17 kicks, seven handballs), made nine marks and logged 28 disposals during Sunday's 102-68 win over GWS.
ANALYSIS
Gawn didn't face much resistance against a team that was already shorthanded and finished the contest with more injuries in midfield. Despite a lower number of hitouts, Gawn is likely to stay as one of the most valuable rucks through his decent disposal tally but even better numbers in marks and clearances. Given his early-season improvements and the strong record of the Dees, watch to see what Gawn can do against the league's best teams to see if he'll keep up the pace all year.
Strong in win
RMelbourne Demons
March 27, 2021
Gawn logged 17 disposals (10 kicks, seven handballs), made five marks and recorded 40 hitouts during Saturday's 91-73 victory over St Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Gawn was a notable improvement between the first two matches in a Saturday full of strong ruck play. It may not be wise to expect him to make as many touches each week, but Gawn is still one of the better players in his position and should be able to take advantage of good matchups just like the rest of the Dee's midfield.
Dominant performance Saturday
RMelbourne Demons
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.
