Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: 3rd best and fairest 2016, 2017; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2014.
Brownlow Medal: -
Junior Club: Claremont (WAFL)
Draft History: GWS Giants Trade Incentive Rule selection 17-year-old access (Gold Coast) No. 1.

Similar to 2016, Martin was another consistent performer last year to claim his second successive third place in the club’s best and fairest. About to enter his fifth season, the West Australian looks capable of taking his game to another level in 2018.

Martin is strong overhead, can win his own ball and is adept at kicking off either foot. The 23-year-old played all 22 games last season where he averaged 18 disposals and kicked 24 goals. His versatility in being able to play back, midfield or forward makes him another crucial member of the SUNS list this year.
