2012 Player Review - # 37 Max Gawn

Recommended Posts

Twelve months ago, Gawny was really working hard through pre-season.  As a guy who’s 208 centimetres tall, he has great versatility, great running ability, and is very coachable.  Unfortunately, as we know, he had his knee injury, and required his second knee reconstruction.  His attitude and his positiveness towards this injury has been outstanding.  He’s been - like Pickles - extremely diligent with his recovery.  He’s gone above and beyond what the Club’s expected of him, not only with his rehab and his recovery, but with his involvements with the Club - his DeeTV, and his capacity to work with other players and try and get the best out of the whole Club, not just himself.  His body has completely changed from the way it looked twelve months ago, he’s in a position where he’ll be able to start full training when we come back, and already he’s - we’d estimate - thirty per cent ahead of where he was at this time last pre-season.  So, he’s really set himself up this year to hopefully play some good AFL footy in the future. - Aaron Greaves (midfield development coach) melbournefc.com.au

Cmon Aaron, whats your real opinion lol ?

Talk about GafAWNing lol.

Seriously though he would be a wonder if he can reach his potential ...his reach IS pretty high after all. Hope his knees hold together.

Seeing Maxy back out on the field is one of the things I'm looking forward to most. Can't wait to see him dominating

That is the $64 question bb.

21 this December and already has had 2 serious knee reconstruction does not give me much confidence.

In the doubtful class for me unfortunately find it hard to see a long AFL career for Max unfortunately.

Still under 21 - 208 cm and close to 110 kgm, and remarkably agile for his size.

Not too many of those around.

IF his knees hold up he will be a huge asset, especially with the new ruck rules. Drooling with anticipation.

Only 4 games in his debut year, but showed a lot of athleticism for a big man (one enormous blooper excepted).

Go Max.

Amazing coordination for a guy his size and age. Makes Spencer (who has a few years on him) look ridiculous.

i seriously doubt that there is room for both, though I guess they may hang on to both as insurance for each other injury wise. For what it is worth, probably nothing, I would trade Spencer this trade period to someone desperate for a ruckman. How about Saints for Ray?

Would do that in a heartbeat though I can't see how Spencer would have any kind of value to be honest, hasn't done much at all really.

If he doesn't make it as an AFL player (and I sure hope he will) he already has the attributes to be an excellent stand up comedian!

Wasn't it Max's antics that helped drive Tom $ from our door???

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se

Fritsch was the only absentee and J Smith was on the bike for the whole session. Everyone in their own numbers except JVR in 44,   Kye Turner is 47 and Burgoyne 33. Started off with goal kicking which has been described before. Then an agility routine where where they ducked aroun
