Player Bio

The game’s pre-eminent superstar, Martin scooped the pool in 2017 by becoming the first player to win the Brownlow Medal, Norm Smith Medal and a premiership in the same year.

The explosive midfielder drove his team through the finals with a series of excellent performances and won his second consecutive Jack Dyer Medal.

Can turn a game off his own boot with his explosive bursts from stoppages and has the ability to push forward and win one-on-one contests. A nightmare for opponents, he is the hardest player in the AFL to tackle with his trademark ‘don’t argue’.
