Gawayne wants no brother vs brother strife here (civil war) and he tells the 2 knights to let Arthur decide whom shall have the favor of the adventure. This is the law of the state in action, order being restored. Gawayne is also going after the stag and hounds but a knight blocks his way across a river. They fight. The other knight dies.
