Dustin Martin opens up to Matthew Richardson on 3AW

exclusive interview

Richmond superstar Dustin Martin has opened up to 3AW’s Matthew Richardson about a range of issues in the lead-up to Saturday’s preliminary final.

Martin, the winner of this year’s VicSuper Player Of The Year award, spoke about dealing with Brownlow Medal favouritism, constant contract speculation, and how a more “open” Trent Cotchin had influenced the Tigers as captain.

He admits he’s thought about winning the Brownlow.

The Richmond superstar is one of the shortest price favourites in history. Martin said it was impossible to avoid the hype.

“To be honest, you do think about it,” Martin told 3AW.

“You’re only human.

“Obviously, my mind is on the job for Saturday and I’m looking forward to that and whatever happens on Monday, happens.”

Martin said he couldn’t wait for the clash with the Giants.

“It’s going to be an awesome game,” Martin said.

“We’re just raring to go.”
