Premier Rugby: Easts pulling out the big Gunn in 2020

Former Reds backrower Michael Gunn has returned to rugby and Easts in 2020, and is keener than ever to play good rugby.

Gunn took last year off following five years with the Reds, and the 25-year-old believes the time away has reignited his passion for the game.

“I had a year off last year just to reassess my priorities,” the undergraduate engineer said. “Then I got itchy and I’m back in the game again.

“Turns out it was the right decision, cos I’m back now and keener than ever to play.

“It wasn’t really cos I didn’t enjoy playing, I think it was more because I’d graduated from school (in 2012) and was playing rugby fulltime and that was kind of all I’d ever known as an adult.
