Mundy stays on with Dockers

Fremantle veteran David Mundy is set to spend at least one more season with the Dockers after penning a new one-year deal.

The 35-year-old showed that age is no barrier following a stellar campaign in 2020 and will now get the chance to reach a huge milestone in 2021.

Mundy has played 332 games throughout his career and is closing in on the magical 350, which has been achieved by just 17 other players in VFL/AFL history.

Mundy is delighted to be going around again and admits the new deal is a weight off his mind.

"It's a big relief. My wife and family and I are obviously thrilled to have some clarity around our future now. 2020 in general has been a time of more questions than answers, so it's good to have it signed," Mundy said.

Mundy could also pass the club record for appearances which stands at 353 and was set by Dockers legend Matthew Pavlich.

However, Mundy says achieving success on the pitch and helping the Dockers play finals again is his main motivation to play on.

"I'm just here to perform, play my role within the team and do my part to take Fremantle back to success and finals football," Mundy said.

"The sky's the limit and anything is possible within games and within seasons. There's a lot of us who have been around a fair while and (we know) those benefits that we saw out of last season aren't guaranteed.

"We're going to have to fight and scrap for them and I'm fully confident we have a group that will."

The Dockers are priced at 50/1 to win the AFL grand final.
