Season in review

Scott McMahon was in North Melbourne’s side to begin 2014, taking his usual role in the defensive half against Essendon.

But a quiet game in the season opener meant the veteran was omitted, sent back to Werribee and the VFL.

McMahon took his demotion well, responding with good performances for the Tigers. Playing on a variety of opponents while in the Werribee backline, his leadership proved valuable as the side charged towards finals.

Eventually the 28-year-old’s form was rewarded with a recall to the North side, playing three consecutive games from Rounds 16 to 18. It even resulted in McMahon’s first goal for three years, a right-foot snap against St Kilda in Round 17 his first since the corresponding round in 2011 against the Western Bulldogs.

McMahon finished the season as one of Werribee’s best performers in its two finals.
