Pendlebury's goal nominated

Pendlebury with accuracy Pendlebury with accuracy from the pocket.
Vice captain Scott Pendlebury's goal from outside 50 in the late stages of the second term has been nominated as an AFL goal of the year contender.

The 24-year-old's goal, his third for the half, pushed the margin out to nine points at the main break.

Teammate Travis Cloke's contested grab early in the final quarter has been nominated as a mark of the year contender.

Cloke soared above a pack to take his first of three contested grabs for the quarter.  The power forward now has 25 for the season, the most in the AFL and just four less than this time last year (Cloke recorded an AFL record 85 contested marks in 2011).
