Commentator Bruce McAvaney has named Tigers star Dustin Martin as the greatest to ever wear the yellow and black.

Speaking in the build up to Richmond’s clash with Geelong on Channel 7, the veteran game caller said the two-time Norm Smith medalist was the best he’s seen play for the Tigers.

“I think it’s (Kevin) Bartlett, and it’s (Royce) Hart and it’s Dustin Martin (as Richmond’s best three),” he said.

“I didn’t see Jack Dyer or Jack Titus so it’s so difficult, but to me Dustin Martin is Richmond’s finest player.

“He’s the best player I have called in a Richmond jumper.

“I do (think he’s the greatest Tiger of all time). Two Norm Smith’s, a Brownlow Medal, 240-odd games, I think he’s the best Tiger of all-time.”

Martin won the 2017 Brownlow medal, making him one of six players to do so for the Tigers.
