Yeah. Martin.

What a start for him at the CFC and exactly what we needed for the forward line.
A smart, creative goal-kicker, play-maker. Just to finish it off with a more robust type now and have our lead guys involved and it will be dangerous.

............and we paid a duck-egg for him. Good for you Cochrane.

Martin is a hard match-up.
Good on the ground, good in the air, elusive and you never know what he may do. Helps that he can kick a goal, also.

A creative goal-kicking forward is exactly what we needed and we got him for nothing.
If only that #9 went north for Papley. Sooner the bird in the hand than for two in the bush. :)

Gotta say never seen such sour grapes from a fanbase, but all 6 of the Suns supporter base are providing some hilarity on their board.

Anyway I think we're all realistic enough to know he won't necessarily light up every quarter or even every game, but his talent and toolset is there plain to see. Back him in.

It's interesting reading all the comments here. He's always been good at the things people seem to be shocked by, like his overhead marking or his fierce tackling, both things you'd think a guy for his size he shouldn't be. Obviously being tucked away up on the Gold Coast means his visibility was low, so those skills seem surprising.

How good was that goal around the body!? Put a smile on my face that did.
when life gets back to normal and we have Harry/Charlie and Eddie in the forward line with him that forward line will be a handful, he looks ready to explode.
What a performance last night, he's so clean and damaging.

He is ridiculously good. Carried that forward line on his lightly-built shoulders. If only we could somehow get our other forwards fit at the same time, it would be a frightening prospect.
When they were doing their warmup last night, I thought, who’s that, I don’t know that body, looked at the number and thought, nah that’s not Jack, it was, he has a rather big rump, he’s really solid through that core.
That’s why he does what he does, skinny everywhere else, but a big arse!
fu** he was good last night, so so happy!
