Dustin Martin’s Norm Smith Medal returned in emotional event

Fiona Byrne,

December 17, 2017

RICHMOND star Dustin Martin has had his Norm Smith Medal returned, completing the extraordinary set of accolades and individual awards he collected during his stellar 2017 AFL season.

Martin gave the precious medal, won for his best on ground performance during the Tigers’ Grand Final victory over the Adelaide Crows in September, to his mate Will Murray for safe keeping. And the teen did the job with aplomb.

Will, 15, a quadriplegic, sustained a critical neck injury after jumping off a pier at Half Moon Bay in 2016.

The Tigers, particularly Martin, have been there for Will following his injury — his mother, Emma, is the club’s mindfulness coach.

Will and Martin have forged a close bond over the past year, even visiting a Buddhist temple.

Will was entrusted with the medal while Martin celebrated the Grand Final victory and then visited the US and Mexico with fellow footy bon vivant Dane Swan.

The teen joined Martin on stage at the star player’s recent “In Conversation” at Crown, where he spoke of their unique friendship.

In front of the 800-strong audience of Tigers fans, he returned the medal to the premiership hero in what was a genuinely emotional moment during a fascinating evening.

“Finally I can get my medal back, mate,” Martin quipped.

“I think he deserves to wear it, just,” Will joked.

Martin’s 2017 medal haul included the Jack Dyer Medal as Richmond’s best and fairest, the Brownlow Medal, AFL Premiership Medal, Gary Ayres Medal as best player of the 2017 finals series, the AFL most valued player, and the Norm Smith Medal.

Yep taz, it's an odd fixture given the popularity of our Punt Rd VFL games and especially the curtain-raisers :huh3.

Our only 3 curtain-raisers are:
VFL R8     May 26 vs Coburg @ Punt Rd .............. Prior to AFL R10 vs St Kilda @ the MCG

VFL R10   June 17 vs Northern Blues @ Punt Rd .... Prior to AFL R13 vs Geelong @ the MCG

VFL R17   July 28 vs Werribee @ Punt Rd ............. Prior to AFL R19 vs Collingwood @ the MCG

Also the VFL R19 vs Willy at Punt Rd starting at 12:30pm will overlap the Gold Coast game at Metricon which starts at 2:10pm.

Smith     229*

An unbeaten partnership of 301 runs.
