WESTERN Bulldogs defender Hayden Crozier has put his name in the mix for the JLT Mark of the Year with a cracking grab against Collingwood on Friday night.

MAGPIES SWOOP IN THRILLER Full match details and stats

Crozier launched over Jamie Elliott on the outer wing and hauled in an almighty mark in the closing stages of the second quarter.

The mark is up there with high-flying Swan's Isaac Heeney's effort in round one.

In an eventful first half at the MCG, milestone man Chris Mayne hobbled off early with a nasty corkie in his 200th game.

Mayne dropped a regulation chest mark in the opening minutes of Collingwood's encounter with the Western Bulldogs, before he was collected in the glute by Mitch Wallis.

He attempted to stretch the injury from the bench, but soon made his way to the rooms and was unable to return to the field of play.

Collingwood had already lost midfielder Dayne Beams prior to the game, with the classy onballer replaced in the side by youngster Callum Brown due to illness.

And in the second quarter, Pies forward Brody Mihocek was reported for striking Tom Liberatore.
