Captaincy candidates

Matthew Pavlich talks to Channel 7 about his decision to relinquish Freo's captaincy.

Following the news of Matthew Pavlich stepping aside as captain, Freo fans will no doubt be debating which Fremantle player will now step into the role vacated by the club legend.

Fremantlefc.com.au takes a look at the current members of the leadership group who could become the 8th captain of the Fremantle Dockers.

Pavlich to relinquish captaincy

David Mundy
Mundy is one of the most beloved players at Fremantle. His workman like attitude is reflected in his game, making him one of the best tough ball winners in the league. The 2010 Doig Medal winner was inducted as a Fremantle Dockers Life Member in 2012, and is coming off a career-best year in which he earned his long overdue first All Australian nod.

Nat Fyfe
Fyfe already boasts an impressive resume, twice being named the AFLPA MVP as well as a two time Doig Medallist and Fremantle’s first and only Brownlow Medal recipient.  An imposing midfielder, Fyfe possesses both the physical and mental traits desired in a leader. While his on field exploits are impressive, it’s Fyfe’s toughness and resolve that will forever be etched in Fremantle lore after he played through a broken leg suffered early in last seasons Preliminary Final loss.

Aaron Sandilands
Sandilands has been a focal point of the Fremantle Dockers since his debut in 2003. He remains one of the most physically impressive players in the league and continues to improve, averaging a career-best 43 hit outs in 2015, on his way to a second Doig Medal. He is a four time All-Australian and was inducted as a Fremantle Docker Life Member in 2010.

Lee Spurr
In the leadership group since 2014, Spurr is one of Fremantle’s most reliable defenders and will always embrace challenges with a no-nonsense approach. He was the Beacon Award winner in 2012 as the clubs best first year player and won the Best Clubman award in 2013, highlighting his leadership assets.
