Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2014.
Brownlow Medal: -
Draft History: GWS Giants Trade Incentive Rule selection 17-year-old access (Gold Coast) No. 1.

Despite battling through an injury-interrupted 2015 season, Martin found strong form late in the year to demonstrate his pure class and build momentum into 2016.

His 21 disposals and 13 kicks in Rd 3 of 2016 against the Geelong Cats proved exactly why the West Australian had earned himself a NAB rising star nomination the year before.

One of the most hyped young players of recent seasons, Martin has shown his ability to take pack marks and deliver to teammates beautifully off either foot.

Playing largely as a half-forward, the 21-year-old wasted no time gathering speed and consistency after he returned from a hamstring injury suffered in the opening minute against Hawthorn in Rd 9.
