Star defender Jeremy McGovern has certainly put forward a stunning contender.

Against a struggling GWS outfit, McGovern flew high above Giant Harry Himmelberg, easily getting onto the forward’s shoulders.

McGovern then snaffled the grab and brought it safely to ground, much to the delight of the Eagles faithful at Optus Stadium.

Fans quickly took to social media to praise McGovern’s grab.

“McGovern just launched into the sky,” one fan posted.

McGovern’s teammate Liam Ryan was named 2019 Mark of the Year winner for his efforts over Melbourne ruckman Max Gawn in the Optus Stadium goal square.

Nic Naitanui (2015) and Ashley Sampi (2004) are the only other Eagles to win the prestigious marking contest.
