Brownlow haul caps Martin’s debut

Richmond young gun Dustin Martin can add another impressive statistic to his achievements in his first year of football, after last night’s Brownlow Medal count.

The 19-year-old polled six votes in the Brownlow in his debut season - the most by a Richmond player in his first season since Craig Lambert in 1988.

Lambert, who played 123 games for the Tigers before moving to Brisbane, polled 10 votes in that year.

In this year’s count, Martin’s votes came against West Coast in Round 12 (one), Brisbane in Round 13 (two), Fremantle in Round 15 (two) and Adelaide in Round 18 (one).

Jack Riewoldt and Brett Deledio polled the most Richmond votes with seven each.

The team scored 37 votes in total, with 10 players attracting the umpires’ attention.

Martin (6), Daniel Connors (3) and Mitch Morton (1) received Brownlow votes for the first time in their careers.
