Dusty the Lion tamer

QF: Let's talk about six, Dusty Dustin Martin turns on beast mode with an unstoppable six-goal performance against the Lions.

Richmond superstar Dustin Martin maintained his remarkable record against Brisbane with an outstanding, six-goal display in last Saturday night’s qualifying final win at the Gabba.

Martin has kicked a total of 29 goals in 14 games versus the Lions during his decade-long AFL career, which is the most he’s scored against any league team.
