David Mundy, Bailey Banfield and Brennan Cox at Makybe Rise Primary School in Baldivis.

Speaking at Makybe Rise Primary School on Thursday morning David Mundy said his approach heading into his 15th AFL season remains unchanged.

The veteran midfielder attended the school in Baldivis with new recruit Bailey Banfield and second year player Brennan Cox as part of the club’s AFL Community Camp in the Peel and Wheatbelt regions.

“I consider myself still good enough to contribute to Fremantle, I feel like I have a lot to offer,” Mundy said.

“I am certainly not approaching this season any different mentally or physically than I have the past fourteen.

“Last season I had a shifting role playing forward and I think that’s the way it swings now in the AFL, you have to play multiple roles really well.

“I feel like I can do that and complement the different guys we’ve got through the different...

Grover passes on his legacy

Antoni Grover presents Nathan Wilson and Brandon Matera with their new numbers.

Fremantle Life Member Antoni Grover hopes that new Freo recruits Nathan Wilson and Brandon Matera can continue a legacy of strong Indigenous players at the club.

The 202-game player presented Nathan Wilson with the no.14 and Brandon Matera with the no.3 at the club on Wednesday, with Grover playing 193 games in the no.14 from 2001 to 2012.

Grover said he was proud to be asked back to the club to present his number to Wilson.

“I was wondering who was going to get my number and when I heard that Nathan was getting it, I was proud to see that I was going to be handing my jumper to a West Australian boy who’s coming home and wants to be at this club,” Grover said. 

“This is something that I wore for 14 seasons of my career. It’s something that my family are really proud of and it’s something I’m proud...

Missed opportunities drive Switkowski

switkowski web 612.jpg

Sam Switkowski in action at Fremantle training on Monday.

After being overlooked in the last three NAB AFL Drafts, Sam Switkowski has learned never to make assumptions.

The former Northern Knights best and fairest winner spent 2014 preparing for life as an AFL footballer, following an outstanding season at TAC Cup level.

But despite interest from several clubs, Switkowski's name wasn't called out.

"It was probably a bit of a wake-up call," he told AFL.com.au.

"I had spoken to a few clubs and sort of felt like there was a good chance that I was going to get picked up. I probably prepared for it a bit too much and then when it didn't happen, I thought, well what do I do now?

"I thought it might not ever happen, but I certainly learned a lot from it. Ever since then, every year that's gone by, I'm hungrier to get there and it was good this year to finally get the reward."

Luke Mac back at Freo

4332863 luke-mac-back-at-freo

Luke McPharlin returns to Fremantle as a specialist defensive coach.

Luke McPharlin has returned to the Freo training track but things are a little bit different this time around for the retired defender.

McPharlin, who hung up the boots in 2015 after playing 256 games for Freo and Hawthorn, will spend the next month working as a defensive coach.

“I’ve come back as the defence specialist coach, I’m here for December and I’ll be working with some of the defenders on bodywork and other things when it comes to defending,” McPharlin said.

“At the moment I am working closely with Griffin Logue but I will be working with all the tall key defenders, Luke Ryan, Alex Pearce, Joel Hamling and Michael Johnson.”

“Hopefully, I’ll be able to impart some of the wisdom I was able to gather over a long career.”

4332867 freo-s-22-aged-22-and-under
AFL 2017 Round 17 - Fremantle v West Coast

Connor Blakely could star in Freo's midfield or at half-back in the future.

In a rapid transition of their list, Fremantle has gone from having the third oldest list to the 10th in the space of a year. 

This has been done while still retaining the club’s most experienced players in Aaron Sandilands, Michael Johnson and David Mundy, who will all play a crucial role in passing on their experience to Freo’s emerging players. 

Turning 35 later this month, Aaron Sandilands will break the record as Freo’s oldest representative with any game played in 2018, passing Matthew Pavlich’s mark of 34 years and 241 days.

At the other end of the age spectrum, Fremantle has seen a significant injection of youth – so much so that the club could now field a side consisting of players aged 22 and under.

With 25 players on the list within that age range, there is also enough ‘depth’ at that age to...

Alex Pearce hits new milestone

Alex Pearce speaks of a special day as he returns to training.

As new recruit Nathan Wilson and Freo’s new draftees hit the track for the first time at their new club, Alex Pearce made his first training appearance with the main group since breaking his leg in round nine of the 2016 season against Richmond at Domain Stadium. 

After more than 560 days in recovery and in the rehab group, Pearce took part in main training drills as he continued his transition back into full training.

Pearce admitted it was an emotional morning.

“This morning I got the call up to join in with the first couple of drills at training, which is the first time since round nine, 2016,” Pearce said.

“It’s been a long time coming. It was a pretty special day actually to be out there with the boys and to finally join back in.”
