Cardiff Hawks product Isaac Heeney won the AFL mark of the year award for his round 21 grab against Melbourne.
The Sydney Swans star climbed above Demons forward Jesse Hogan for the mark, which was judged best of the season at the Brownlow Medal awards night on Monday.
Heeney won the top honour ahead of Brisbane’s Charlie Cameron, who was nominated for his round nine grab against Hawthorn, and Fremantle livewire Michael Walters, who challenged with his round 20 mark against West Coast.
The All Australian committee used a 5-4-3-2-1 voting system to narrow the nominations from all 23 rounds to the final three. In a change from last year after Collingwood’s Jeremy Howe was snubbed in the mark of the year award, the 10-member committee then voted on the overall winner. The fan pick counted as an 11th vote.
Last year, the fan vote decided the mark and goal of the year awards, which carry a $10,000 prize.
