CARLTON footballer Matt Kennedy has earned a Mark of the Week nomination, as well as bragging rights over Collingullie premiership teammate Harry Perryman, all in one moment.
Kennedy made a strong return to the Carlton team on Saturday night, gathering a game-high 27 disposals in the Blues' 36-point loss to Greater Western Sydney on Saturday night.
But there was one particularly moment he enjoyed, taking a big mark over Perryman early in the final term.
The grab earned Kennedy a Mark of the Week nomination. You can vote for the mark here.
Kennedy was reluctant this week to stir Perryman about the mark, citing the fact that his good mate had the last laugh, winning the game, as his reason.
He did say he was pleasantly surprised to earn a nomination.
Perryman though did not hold back on Kennedy.
"He had a good chance to nail me but I knew he wouldn't do it!," Perryman laughed.
Kennedy then returned serve.
"I actually didn't know it was Pezz. If I did know I would have nailed him," Kennedy fired back.
"Every time we crossed paths on game day we were just quoting old Sparks sayings. And at the end of the game we were just talking about Gullie beating the Tigers and we were both pumped."
Kennedy and Perryman are not only good mates but are also premiership teammates at Collingullie-Glenfield Park. They were both drafted to the Giants within 12 months of each other and kick-started their career at the club.
Kennedy is up against marks from Brisbane's Eric Hipwood and Geelong's Tom Stewart to take Mark of the Week honours.
