Biography:

Martin is known as the strongest player in the NRL.

Nick-name 'Kapow', Martin is the spearhead of the Sea Eagles pack and is one of the game's fiercest front-rowers who makes plenty of great metres for the team each week.

His ability to offload is second to none and is a key in igniting the team's attack around the rucks.

Off the field, Martin is a great community ambassador for the game and is also studying a Bachelor of Business degree.
