Aussie Rules: Mundy racing to make round one

Fremantle veteran David Mundy has had a disrupted pre-season with injury but says he will be fit and ready for round one of the 2022 AFL campaign.

Fremantle are priced at 9/4 to finish in the top eight this season and Mundy will again be crucial to their chances of having a strong 2022 AFL campaign.

Strong 2021

Despite being 36-years-old the midfielder had one of the best seasons of his career in 2021 earning plenty of praise from pundits, players and supporters alike.

However he has not been able to train with the main group at Fremantle after suffering an ankle injury before Christmas and he faces a race against time to be fully fit for round one.

However Mundy does not sound too concerned and says he will be ready to go for the opening clash against the Adelaide Crows.

"The way I am tracking I will get plenty of minutes in in the pre-season phase of football. I am looking to join in in the intra-clubs and a couple of the practice matches. Round one is still definitely the focus.

"The boys are flying out there and I take a lot of motivation from that. I am just tracking and trying to progress as quickly as I can."

Brodie shines

Meanwhile Mundy has also been impressed with new recruit Will Brodie who has been shining in pre-season and should be a valuable addition to the Dockers side.

"From a midfielder’s perspective he is in everything he is tackling really hard and he has got really clean hands. I think he will be a really valuable asset for us," Mundy added.

"We are really focusing on trying to build that chemistry and that connection between all of us and keep the guys healthy throughout the season I think will be our biggest keys."
