Player Bio

At A Glance

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

Has not played a game yet, but enters his debut season with huge expectations.  Like Jaeger O’Meara last year, the West Australian was drafted by the Suns a year early and played in the NEAFL.

Martin is best suited in the midfield, but can play half-forward and wing and even spent time at half-back during his 10 NEAFL games.

He is an excellent ball user off both sides, makes good decisions and is not afraid to take marks running with the flight of the ball.

He is lightning quick, agile and skilful, and although needing to add size to his slight frame, should slot straight into the starting 22.
