Fremantle midfielder David Mundy says this weekend’s Western Derby is the biggest cross-town clash in more than a decade.

Fremantle host West Coast in the first-ever clash between the two sides at Optus Stadium this weekend, with a record-breaking crowd of over 58,000 expected to fill the stadium.

The 32-year-old Dockers veteran told Afternoons the upcoming clash is “really exciting” for Western Australian football.

“You have to go back to 2006 to get back to a Derby where both teams were travelling in a good manner,” Mundy said.

“We’ve had some pretty good crowds at (Optus Stadium) this year so the atmosphere that’s created within that environment is really energising and the boys are really enjoying player there.

“We’ve been playing quite well (at the new venue) so it’s been a great start to the year.”
