As well as electing David Mundy as captain on Friday, the Fremantle Dockers also determined which players would make up the 2016 leadership group.

Defensive stalwart Michael Johnson will join Mundy, Matthew Pavlich, Aaron Sandilands, Lee Spurr and Nat Fyfe as a new addition to the Freo leadership for 2016.

Mundy to lead Fremantle in 2016

David Mundy
Mundy enters his first season as Fremantle captain coming off a career-best year in which he was awarded his first All Australian selection, an achievement long overdue in the minds of Freo fans. Mundy leads by example and has been a constant high performance player for the better part of a decade.
Debut: 2005
Games played: 233

Michael Johnson
Johnson re-joins the leadership group for the first time since 2010. The highly skilled defender has become one of the club’s most reliable players and is a revered leader among the Indigenous players and community as a whole. Johnson brings a wealth of knowledge to younger members of the team.
Debut: 2005
Games played: 205

Matthew Pavlich
The Fremantle legend is entering his 16th season with the club and while not having the title of ‘captain’ for the first time since 2006, he will continue to be a pillar of leadership for the team.
Debut: 2000
Games played: 335

Aaron Sandilands
Sandilands continued to impress in 2015, averaging a career high 43 hit outs a game, on his way to winning his second Doig Medal. He is coming off an injury free off-season and is poised to continue as one of the dominant ruckmen in the competition. He leads by example and has done so since debuting for Freo in 2003.
Debut: 2003
Games played: 239

Nat Fyfe
Capping 2015 by becoming the first Brownlow Medallist in Fremantle history, Fyfe has established himself as one of the best players in the competition and continues to impress with his determination, toughness and resolve. Like all good leaders, Fyfe elevates his play in big matches.
Debut: 2010
Games played: 112

Lee Spurr
One of Fremantle’s most dependable defensive figures, often playing against opponents of varying sizes and is never one to back down from a challenge. For Spurr to be selected to the leadership group from his unglamorous position speaks as to how highly regarded he is among his peers.
Debut: 2012
Games played: 82
