Martin’s already lofty reputation was further enhanced after another superb season in 2020.
The prime-moving Tiger again saved his absolute best for when it mattered most, putting
on another finals clinic.
He kicked four goals and picked up 21 touches in the Grand Final triumph over Geelong to claim an unprecedented third Norm Smith Medal.
Martin also won selection in the All-Australian team for the fourth time, claimed a third Gary Ayres Award (AFL best finals player) and finished runner-up in the Jack Dyer Medal.
Will become the 17th Tiger to reach 250 games early in 2021.
