Mundy was drafted by Fremantle at selection 19 at the 2003 AFL Draft. This selection was traded to Fremantle by the Western Bulldogs in return for Steven Koops.

David Mundy Retirement
Mundy’s retirement speech was a typically understated affair, with the Fremantle great adamant his decision to walk away from the game should not take focus off the Dockers’ push for a top four spot.
The 37-year-old will retire at the end of the season and communicated his decision to teammates and the coaching staff on Monday, but urged them to focus on Saturday’s clash against the Western Bulldogs at Marvel Stadium.
Speaking to the Back Chat podcast, Dockers ruckman Sean Darcy revealed Mundy’s speech lasted less than a minute.
‘I’ve sat through a couple and they go for 10-15 minutes and have the works, tears and he was in and out, he goes “we’ve got bigger fish to fry” and just sat down.
‘He said ‘thanks to the physios and all the support staff, you mean so much to me, and to the boys, this is my last season’ and then a little bit more. […] He hates talking about himself.
Even during the presser after, reporters were asking him what he wanted to be remembered as and he said “an honest battler”.’
It could be argued that a childless David Mundy would have reached his 350-game milestone a week ago.
In the latest episode of Old Bull, Young Buck, Mundy spoke at length about the mostly positive impact his family has had on his 349-game career to date.
But he also recounted one downside, when a bike accident in December 2019 saw him sidelined for the first half of 2020 with an ankle injury.
While it would be wrong to call it a silver lining, the delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic meant Mundy missed only one game and was fit to return when the season resumed three months later.
“I’ve been incredibly lucky that I haven’t had any big impact injuries, bones or joints or anything – aside from the bike (incident),” Mundy said.
“I was riding my bike with my two boys (Finn and Hudson) down near Point Walter and we’re going at a pretty good clip down a hill.
“What happened is what I feel like always happens. The boys started racing each other, fighting, pushing each other as they’re riding and there’s a huge stack right in front of me.
