Not only did Fremantle Dockers veteran David Mundy guide his side to a thumping 51-point AFL win over North Melbourne, he scored another perfect 10 points from the AFL Coaches Association.
He tallied 30 disposals, eight clearances, and three goals in the 14.15 (99) to 6.12 (48) win on Saturday night which, being smack bang in the middle of Perth’s three-day COVID-19 lockdown, meant playing to an empty Optus Stadium.
Mundy’s nickname has always been ‘Barra’ but it’s this kind of performance that’s earning the 35-year-old another – ‘Benjamin Button’.
Even local betting agencies; over the last week and a half, the odds of Mundy taking home this year’s Brownlow have shortened from $251 to $31.
As one of the most humble guys in the competition, how the HECK is he reacting to the fresh spotlight?
