McGovern's incredible act of Grand Final courage


//

West Coast premiership hero Jeremy McGovern has revealed the pain he endured in the week leading up to the club's epic AFL Grand Final win. 

Speaking to Nine News, McGovern explained how he broke his ribs during the Grand Final prior to taking his match-saving intercept mark that led to the Eagles' match-winning goal by Dom Sheed.

"I probably didn't think I was going to play," McGovern said.

"Early days it (the pain) was 10 (out of 10). Throughout the week it was 10. 

"I probably played at about three, three or four depending on when I got hit."

The three-time All-Australian was inspirational during the Grand Final, taking nine marks to go along with his 14 disposals and needed six injections just to make it to the game.

McGovern also revealed that he tore his muscles off his hip and suffered internal bleeding following a bump from Melbourne's Christian Petracca during the Eagles' preliminary final win over Melbourne. 

The bruising bump had left the 26-year-old in hospital overnight on a morphine drip, with McGovern also urinating blood during the week.
