Ballantyne praised for bravery

Fremantle midfielder David Mundy has praised teammate Hayden Ballantyne for his performance in their 32-point win over Geelong at Patersons Stadium last night.

Mundy joined some of his teammates at Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth this morning for the annual RSPCA Million Paws Walk in the wake of his best on ground effort against the Cats.

Mundy gathered 34 disposals in captain Matthew Pavlich’s 300 milestone match in one of club’s best performances of 2014.

The big-bodied on baller said it was great to go into their bye next weekend with a positive 5-4 record.
Ballantyne bounced back from a procedure on his cheek during the week to be one of the Dockers’ best, sparking them with three brilliant goals.

“He is a fantastic little guy,” Mundy said.

“Right from Tuesday he was putting his hand up to play.

“To come in and play but then put his body on the line and play in the manner he did was a real credit to him and he has built a lot of trust within the playing group.

“He is the kind of guy you want to play with, he puts everything on the line and he is going to give you his all so the boys really trust him in that.”
