Yep; think we all forget how lucky we are to have Gov;For all the talk of McGovern having a downish year, there's no defender anywhere near him for contested marks. And he's going at 81% disposal efficiency. Career high for 1%ers. Rebounding more, giving away fewer frees and making fewer clangers than 2017-18. It's still pretty damn solid. And who else is in the mix?
Among key defenders (total for the season)
#1 intercept marks
#1 contested marks
#4 contested defence loss rate
#13 one percenters
82% disposal efficiency
I'd agree that Gov has had a bit of a down year relative to the past couple, but his stats are still ridiculous; no other key defender comes close. With the way the modern game is played, he could just rack up AA year after year. Should make his fourth team in a row from 5 completed seasons. Insane.
