Frustrated Dusty lashes out at Giants opponent


//

Dustin Martin's stuttering start to the 2019 season has mirrored Richmond's struggles and now the Tigers could be without the Brownlow Medallist.

The Tigers midfield star gave away a free kick in the first half of his side's Round 3 clash against the GWS Giants after umpires caught him throwing an errant elbow at his direct opponent Matt de Boer.

Martin's uncharacteristically poor performances over the first two weeks of the season have put him under the microscope and he was frustrated by de Boer who held him to just nine disposals and two tackles in the first half.

The three-time All-Australian also showed his frustrations by raising a finger to a Giants opponent before making a snorting gesture to an opponent after he was sledged.

According to St Kilda legend Nick Riewoldt, a way to get Martin back to his best may be to give him more stints up forward.

"I'd like to see him play a little bit up deep as well," Riewoldt told Fox Footy.

"We know Tom Lynch is the focal point but try and isolate him.

"He is so strong in that one-on-one situation if he can drag a de Boer or a mismatch down there.

Already without Alex Rance and Jack Riewoldt, the Tigers can ill-afford to lose their midfield lynchpin in Martin ahead of what looms as an important Round 4 clash against Port Adelaide in Adelaide.
