The Richmond Tigers are in another AFL grand final tomorrow - and they couldn't have done it without a former Campbelltown Blues player.
Two-time Norm Smith medallist and former Brownlow medallist Dustin Martin is one of the biggest names in the AFL, but he once played in Macarthur.
The 29-year-old had a stint with the Blues and the Wollondilly/Camden joint venture team, the Razorbacks, as a teenager.
Blues club president David Bowen told the Advertiser after Martin's first grand final appearance in 2017 that the mid/forward was a "very skillful, talented" player even as a 15-year-old and had a great influence on the club.
"He was a champion player back then, just as he is on the football field now," Bowen said at the time.
"It's a very proud moment for the club to have a Brownlow medallist."
That pride could be tripled this weekend if Richmond walk away with their third trophy in four years and the Martin pulls out his third best-on-ground grand final performance - and secures his place in history as one of the all-time great finals players.
The AFL grand final between Richmond and Geelong kicks off at 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday, October 24).
