Player Bio

One of the game’s biggest stars, Martin won his first Jack Dyer Medal in a career-best season when he finished third in the Brownlow Medal.

The explosive midfielder focused on the contested side of his game and became a permanent inside midfielder who competed with the best stoppage players in the game.

His disposals, clearances and contested possessions all rocketed to career-high levels last season and the Tigers still see more improvement in him.
