OUTLOOK
Mayne took his forward line pressure to another level in 2015, averaging more than five tackles
a game whilst also managing to kick 28 goals. A well-rounded forward who poses a match-up threat in every game.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Mark Stone)
Chris is very strong, fit and powerful and he uses this to advantage with his speed off the mark
on leads. He leads by example in the forward line and is working to improve his contested marking in 2016.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Mayne more than doubled his previous season’s goal tally and brought his trademark tackling pressure 
in the forward line. This dangerous combination made him a valuable commodity in 2015.

Mayne was still very good at applying pressure in Freo’s forward line,
but his goal numbers were down on his previous two seasons. He’ll look to return as a scoring threat next year.

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.

Charity partner ambassador: Starlight Children’s Foundation

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.
