Outlook: Brilliant in the forward line in 2013, doing it all. Mayne kicked goals, took marks and tackled ferociously. Expect the same again.

What the coach says (Peter Sumich): Was really, really good pre-Christmas and then had a slight injury hiccup but he’s back in training now and looking really good. So looking for big things again this year.

AFL Fantasy: Mayne was a very consistent performer last year and, if freed by the presence of another tall forward in attack, he could have an even better season in 2014.

Season by Season

Season by Season

An elite pressure forward and one of the best set-shots in the game. Mayne took his game to a higher level in 2013 and has been instrumental in Fremantle's rise to a top four side. One of the most accurate set-shots in the game for the second year running.

Chris Mayne had a season to savour in front of the big sticks in 2012, recording one of the most accurate goal-kicking seasons in VFL/AFL history.                  

He kicked 39 goals and seven behinds for the year - an 84.8 per cent conversion rate.

Even more remarkable was his kicking from set-shots.

Mayne booted 25.4 at a brilliant 86.2 per cent success rate. At one stage of the season he had converted 22 straight shots.

Mayne only failed to register a goal in four of his 23 games this season, but even if he failed to hit the scoreboard, he more than made up for it with his relentless pressure in attack.

He had 403 pressure acts at an average of 17.5 per game over the season, the most by a Freo forward.

He also took a number of big marks, highlighted by a great grab against Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium in round 18.

This was a breakout season for Mayne and he will look to continue his development in 2013.

Mayne was pleased to have played all 22 games for Freo this season after only managing 14 and five in the previous two seasons because of injury. He was Freo’s equal leading goalkicker along with Kepler Bradley on 25. Mayne finished top four in total marks (94) this season and had the most tackles (92) at the club. The latter statistic highlights the crucial pressure he applied to opposition defences to lock the ball in Freo’s forward half. One area he has worked hard to improve is his kicking for goal. Mayne booted 23 behinds this season and will be looking to convert more opportunities into six pointers in 2012.

Mayne was an important player to the team in 2010, with his pressure skills inside the attacking half a highlight of his game. He also chimed in with 16 goals despite missing 10 games from rounds 12-21. He will be hoping to go to the next level in his fourth year of AFL football in 2011.
