After an intense two weeks of training with a clearance specialist, ask David Mundy today and he will tell you that he is more than ready to play on Saturday against the Lions. Mundy was keen to start the season along with his teammates in round one after recovering from an ankle injury during the off-season. During the week Fremantle coach Ross Lyon was hopeful that Mundy would return to the Dockers midfield this weekend at Paterson Stadium.
While he says he was in the gym all summer, Mundy understands why he wasn’t brought back into the side earlier this season. Having not completed the running tests that were required for him to be given the all-clear to play, Mundy believes all his hard work over the last fortnight is enough to see him make a strong contribution to the game this round. He revealed that he successfully completed a 16km running challenge last weekend which is a simulation of a match and proves he is ready to play.
Yesterday Mundy was selected for the Dockers, meaning he will play in this week’s contest and it was revealed he will start the game in the center.
