Max Gawn Takes Us Behind The Scenes Of Melbourne Dropping Brodie Grundy
Melbourne captain Max Gawn took Marty Sheargold Show listeners behind the scenes of the Dees dropping off-season recruit Brodie Grundy today, explaining how the decision was communicated to the two of them.
“We both really wanted this to work, and it still will,” he said.
“I’m still quite bullish it will work towards the end of the year.
“The big men get a lot bigger in those last few games of the season.”

Max also explained that becoming full time front half players isn’t on the cards for either of them, despite the request for Grundy to work on his forward craft.
“One of us won’t just be a full forward for the next five weeks,” he said.
“We’ll still do this 50/50 type ruck stuff… for a while there — apart from maybe the last three weeks — we were both very happy with our performances in terms of being able to ruck 50% and then sit forward and make a contest.
