Backed up his remarkable 2017 with another brilliant season, cementing his place as one of the best defenders in the competition. McGovern dominated as both a one-on-one defender and intercept marker, being named in the All Australian team for a third time. His efforts to get up for the grand final under serious duress, and then his performance on the day, will go down in West Coast folklore.
