Another Eddie Betts Goal of the Year nomination

Highlights R12: And Eddie does it again... Eddie Betts. From the pocket. Again.

Crows forward Eddie Betts has secured another Goal of the Year nomination for his outrageous final quarter effort in the dying minutes against Greater Western Sydney on Saturday night.

In a similar field position to where he booted his 2016 Goal of the Year against the same opponent, and his Round Five goal against Gold Coast in his 300th AFL game, Betts once again made the impossible look easy.

With the ball coming to ground from a marking contest, Betts eluded Giants Heath Shaw and Sam Reid before collecting the Sherrin tight against the boundary line in the forward pocket.

With Zac Williams approaching, Betts sized up the goals and calmly put the footy straight through the middle with a perfect right foot snap to send the Adelaide Oval crowd and his teammates into a frenzy.
