Here are the top 10 marks of the 2019 season, as selected by the Zero Hanger team!
Greenwood’s fourth quarter mark in the Showdown earlier this year earns him a spot in the top 10 in the best marks of 2019.

Courageous is the word that comes to mind when you watch Hooker’s mark on ANZAC Day. The time of the game, the scores, all add to the significance of the mark. Could argue this should be higher on the list.
Who took the best mark of round six?

Guess he has to feature in the top 10 as he takes a speccy it seems every second week. His career highlights will be one of the best ever.

McCarthy features twice in the top 10 in what has been a fantastic year for him after being traded from Geelong at the end of last season. Will have a big role to play in the upcoming finals series for the Lions.

5. Tom Stewart – (Round 9 v Western Bulldogs)
The grin says it all…
TOM STEWART THAT IS INSANE!

4. Hayden Crozier – (Round 4 v Collingwood)
In his second year at the kennel, Crozier has excelled down back and taken unbelievable marks when his team needed them most. His round four mark over Collingwood’s Jamie Elliott was insane. Take a look below.
Allen’s courageous mark in the fourth quarter against the Hawks will be something Adam Simpson looks back on at the end of the season and says, “we’ve got our guy.” In a closely fought game, Allen stood up when it mattered most and put his body in harms way to help the Eagles beat the Hawks by a kick.
2. Lincoln McCarthy – (Round 22 v Geelong)
Less than two minutes to go and his team down by four points McCarthy took (in our eyes) the second best mark of the year. If the Lions lose this game then they probably aren’t in the top two and don’t host a home final in two weeks’ time. Extraordinary mark.
Lincoln McCarthy stood tall when it mattered!

1. Liam Ryan – (Round 9 v Melbourne)
Sorry Maxy, though this will be on highlight reels for years to come. Eagle Liam ‘Flyin’ Ryan has the knack to take contested marks wherever he is on the field. The air time in this mark is ridiculous and is rightly judged number one for the best mark of the year.
