How McMahon finished the season

McMahon would be among the first to admit he had a disappointing 2013. 11 games for the season was the lowest total in his career.

When the number 42 was in the senior side, his disposal was still at a high standard, as the kicking efficiency stat shows. However towards the end of the year, he found form for Werribee in the VFL and was a big part of its impressive run at the end of the home and away season.

McMahon returned for pre-season earlier than expected and will spend an extra week in Utah as he seeks to regain peak fitness for the 2014 season.
