It wasn’t quite in the category of “Jesaulenko, you beauty” or “Leo Barry, you star” but it could still prove to be profitable.

While Alex Jesaulenko and Leo Barry became famous for makes they took, Dubbo Demons ruckman/full forward/man mountain Tom Skinner is a chance to write his name firmly into local AFL folklore.

For dropping a mark.

A video of the big man dropping a mark at full-forward before recovering to soccer home a goal last Saturday in the clash against Bathurst Giants has gone viral on sports website The Roar.

And it has the potential to help the Demons win a share of $10,000 as part of Club Roar’s highlights and lowlights section (we’ll let you figure out which category this video falls in to).

Both the mens and womens Demons sides are enjoying a bye this weekend, with the men back in action next Saturday with a trip to Young to face the Saints.

The girls next match will be at home against Bathurst Bushrangers on Saturday, July 29.
