FREMANTLE skipper Nat Fyfe and rejuvenated utility Hayden Crozier are in the running to claim the AFL’s Mark of the Year competition.
The pair were announced as nominees for marks taken during the Dockers’ tense round 4 win over Melbourne at the MCG.
Fyfe’s mark came in the first term of Saturday’s two-point win, with the Brownlow medallist charging back with the flight of the ball and beating out the oncoming Dean Kent for the mark.
Crozier was nominated for his third quarter grab, soaring high over Melbourne’s Billy Stretch and holding strong as Bernie Vince tried to spoil.
The clunk came at an important time, with the Dockers five points down but storming back into the contest after trailing at the main change.
The Dockers won the match 16.10 (106) to 15.14 (104).
The other round 4 nomination was Brisbane’s Dayne Zorko.
Zorko leapt high over Richmond’s Dion Prestia late in the fourth term of Sunday’s clash at the Gabba.
It was a consolation prize, with the Tigers easily winning the match.
