As we approach the final days of the Febfast challenge, Fremantle’s Matt De Boer and David Mundy continue to lead the way on behalf of the AFL Players and have shared their secret recipe to the ultimate Green Smoothie. (See recipe at bottom of the article.)
The two Dockers have abstained from drinking coffee and alcohol for the month to help raise money for Ladder, the AFL Players’ Association’s official charity, while setting a positive example for young people.
Speaking on 1116 SEN on Thursday, De Boer said, “The tougher one at the moment is coffee, because you can go without alcohol during pre-season. I think the coffee’s hurting David the most.”
De Boer revealed the move has put him in the good books with his coach.
“I think Ross [Lyon] is pretty happy about it as well, with pre-season ramping up.”
The 23-year-old Docker knows from experience the positive effect refraining from drinking alcohol can have.
“The recovery aspect of not drinking alcohol is massive, particularly later in the year,” De Boer said.
