Scott McMahon Biography

Tuesday, 29 September 2015
American prospect Eric Wallace has been delisted by North Melbourne, ending the club's three-year experiment with the athletic ruckman.

He was one of three players delisted by the Kangaroos, with the club also parting ways with 29-year-old defender Scott McMahon and rookie Max Warren.

"Wed like to thank Scott, Max and Eric for their commitment and dedication to the club during their time at Arden St," football manager Geoff Walsh said.

"Scott, Max and Eric have represented the club extremely well both on and off the field and should be proud of their contributions.

"They have all been true professionals during their time in North colours and we wish them all the very best for the future."

Scott McMahon says his main focus this pre-season is to significantly improve his fitness after being issued a challenge by Kangaroos coach Brad Scott.

"My main and biggest goal was to start pre-season from day one, but the main thing for me was to get my fitness to a level where I am able to compete in the AFL," McMahon said.

"Brad and I had spoken about heading to Utah a little bit earlier, so Sam Wright, Brad and I went over there a week early to get a little bit of extra training at high altitude in.

"I didn't miss a training session over there and, just in myself, definitely feel a lot fitter and stronger now.

"But I still have a way to go and we won't know until we get into the games how fit I actually am."

After an average season in 2013 affected by injuries, Scott McMahon is determined to improve on his fitness this pre-season in preparation for 2014.

"I think Brad (Scott's) biggest thing is just to get the fitness back to where it needs to be and make sure I stay on top of that and also just make sure my body holds up where I'm able to do the majority, if not all, of the training," McMahon said.

"That's the biggest thing for me. If I don't keep up with the core (strength training) and all that, my body's just going to break down again."

Robbie Tarrant and Scott McMahon both sign two-year deals North Melbourne.

"I wouldn't leave because North is pretty much my family. The club has treated me and my wife Des so well over the years," McMahon said.

"They've been really good to me over a number of years on the field and off the field. I was never not going to stay. As soon as they put something to Paul (Connors), my manager, I was happy to sign it," Tarrant said.

Scott McMahon will miss the Kangaroos' round one clash with Collingwood after accepting a one-match suspension by the Match Review Panel for a high strike on Geelong youngster Jordan Murdoch.
Tuesday, 11 September 2012
Match Review Panel chairman Mark Fraser has slammed Quentin Lynch's decision to launch recklessly into North player Scott McMahon during the Eagles' elimination final against North Melbourne.

"We believe that's breaching a duty of care as a player. If you go into a contest knees first like that, even though there is an attempt to hit the ball over there. We think that's worthy of charging," Fraser said.

"It does have the potential in the worst case scenario that you break somebody's back. It was a very forceful hit and we believe that's a charge."

Scott McMahon has recovered from a mystery illness and may make his return for North Melbourne this Saturday.

"It was the worst pain I've ever felt. I had to get my wife to carry me to bed because I couldn't stand up, couldn't bend my legs and couldn't move my arms," McMahon said.

"The hardest thing with the joint pain was that one day it might be in my right elbow and then the next day it might be in my left knee. The day after that it might be the hands, so it was just moving around.

"They said that because it was in my immune system it was travelling around the body and then picking a spot to settle."

Scott McMahon has been readmitted to hospital as he battles to overcome a painful viral condition that causes extreme rashes and painful joint swelling.

"Scotty's recovery is really something that we'll have to look at on a week-to-week basis," North Melbourne director of medical services Steve Saunders said.

"At this stage, you would think he'd be right to go in the next few weeks. But we've got to guard against another relapse, so we certainly won't be rushing him."

North Melbourne defender Scott McMahon will miss the trip to Adelaide this weekend for the possible birth of his child.

"My view is that even though it's a small percentage chance, it will occupy 100 per cent of Scott's thinking while we're over in Adelaide," North Melbourne coach Brad Scott said.

"If his mind's not going to be on the job where it needs to be, and it should rightly be with his wife, we've made the call we're not going to take him this week and he can stay home with his wife and be sure that if anything happens, he's going to be there."

Tuesday, 14 July 2009
North Melbourne defender Scott McMahon says the Roos need to start winning to boost the confidence of emerging players.

"You just get the experience of playing against the best teams, especially going into finals. You know they're going to come out hard and also playing in front of big crowds [helps too]," he said.
