The mercurial Martin got his wish when he officially became a Blue in the NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft. Capable of producing a moment of magic, Martin oozes class and has shown his potential across his 97 career games for the Gold Coast Suns. Now arriving at Ikon Park, Martin himself believes he’s best suited to having an impact up forward, where he’ll link up with one of his idols Eddie Betts. Likely to push through the midfield to make an impact, Martin joins a significant West Australian contingent at the Blues with Patrick Cripps, Zac Fisher, Mitch McGovern and Sam Petrevski-Seton.
