Season Summary: Liam Martin

Courageous, determined and committed - they're just a few words to describe Panthers forward Liam Martin. 

The 25-year-old representative had another consistent season, playing 22 games to help lead the Panthers to back-to-back premierships.

Martin isn't afraid of getting his hands dirty and doing the hard yards on the field - from taking the tough carries to putting on big hits in defence. He averages over 30 tackles a game to go with over 100 run metres. 

As well as notching another three State of Origin matches to his resume, Martin had the opportunity of making his Test debut for Australia at the Rugby League World Cup in England.

The minor premiership was secured for the Panthers when Liam Martin crashed over in the final minutes against South Sydney in Round 23. 

Martin had bombed two tries earlier in the match, but it was third time lucky for the back-rower when Api Koroisau sent him over the line. 

Panthers trick play secures victory


NSW Blues star Liam Martin was labelled a grub in the lead up to State of Origin game II. Journalists asked Martin's Panthers teammates what they think of the sledge, with Isaah Yeo giving a hilarious response. 

They finally caught on, he is the biggest pest at Penrith. I’m just glad he is doing it to the opposition team and not just his friends. He plays the game hard. He tries to get under people’s skin whether it’s his club teammates or the opposition, so I’d like to think he is doing that at this level not just at club land.

Liam Martin is arguably the biggest pest at the Panthers - but he got a taste of his own medicine when he was handed a fake boarding pass for the team's flight to Brisbane for Magic Round.
