I look forward to it every year: Martin

Rhiannon Sargent  May 27, 2017 11:05 AM

I think it’s important to go out and represent my family and where I’m from.

The opportunity to represent his tribe on a national stage is a humbling experience for Jack Martin

The 22-year-old reflected on the symbolic nature of Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round when he spoke with goldcoastfc.com.au.

“Just to go out there, pull on the jumper and run out with all the other brothers, it’s definitely a round we look forward to throughout the year,” he said. 

As with the other five Indigneous players, Martin and his family are represented on this year’s Indigenous guernsey.

However, rather than an animal totem, Martin’s tribe name will be displayed on the side of the guernsey.

“My tribe is the Yawuru people from Broome, around the Kimberly region,” he said.

“I grew up in Broome and all my family are there at the moment.

“I think it’s important to go out and represent my family and where I’m from."

The Gold Coast SUNS will take on Melbourne in Alice Springs at 4.05pm CST on Saturday.
