SUMMARY
Mundy has added three kilos ahead of the 2017 season as he looks to regain his imposing 2015 All Australian form. Last season he switched between stints in the midfield and along half-back, and earned a career-high 44 disposals against Sydney in round 19.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Anthony Rock)
David has been training strongly and has had a consistent pre-season. He’s been working extra hard on his running and will be versatile for us in either a midfield or defensive role.

Season by Season

Season by Season

A challenging first year as captain, stood up against adversity with a career high 44 disposals in a loss against Sydney in round 19. Amassed 199 contested possessions for the season, the second most for Freo.

Mundy was at his best in 2015. He was a solid performer all year and was rewarded for his fine season with an overdue first All Australian selection. He is still a main cog in the Freo team.

Mundy was again prominent in the heart of Freo’s midfield.
Whether he was winning the football in the packs or disposing
of it with precise delivery, Mundy excelled in a season that saw
him reach 200 AFL games.

The classy midfielder has enjoyed his best season since his Doig Medal year of 2010. His poise and skill has been vital to Fremantle's engine room. He was Fremantle's best player in the Grand Final.

David Mundy had a compromised pre-season due to injury and thus began the 2012 season very slowly. But come September, the 2010 Doig Medallist was arguably the most in-form midfielder in the competition in the final rounds of the home and away season and the first two weeks of finals.

His midfield master-class in round 22 was too much for North Melbourne, and he was the best player on the ground in Fremantle’s close Semi Final loss to Adelaide.

Despite his slow start, Mundy still finished top five per game at Freo in disposals (22.1), effective kicks (8.1), contested possessions (9.5), loose-ball-gets (2.9), uncontested possessions (12.7), clearances (4.1) and inside 50s (3.7).

His excellent understanding with ruckman Aaron Sandilands, along with midfield partner Michael Barlow, came to the fore in the last thiRnd of 2012 and should again propel Freo in 2013.

David Mundy started 2011 like a house on fire. After winning the 2010 Doig Medal, the classy midfielder looked set for an even better year. He averaged 28 disposals per game through the first nine rounds. His season effectively ended in round 12, when a broken leg saw him play just one more game in 2011. Despite playing only 12 games, Mundy still finished top 10 in total contested possessions (139), effective handballs (114), hard (63) and loose (34) ball gets, tackles (68) and inside 50s (43). Remarkably, he finished fourth overall for clearances (61). He is a champion and Fremantle’s best midfielder.

Mundy made a quantum leap in 2010, winning the Doig Medal after a brilliant performance playing as a permanent on-baller. He averaged 22 disposals per game in his 22 appearances but it was his precision skills that were the highlights in a great year for the club. His performance in the Elimination Final against Hawthorn was inspirational, and the news that he has signed on for a further four years is music to the ears of all Freo supporters.
