Noah Martin ready to fire in Sky Blue

Canberra Raiders development player Noah Martin will make his NSW Blues debut in Thursday night's Under 19's State of Origin at Leichhardt Oval. 

After receiving the Don Furner Senior NSW Country Scholarship in 2022, Martin has been in the Raiders system and is currently on a development contract for the 2024 season. 

The barnstorming backrower has played seven games in the NSW Cup and has established a reputation as a hard worker in both attack and defence. 

Throughout the pre-season, Martin took the opportunity to learn off the experienced Raiders forward pack and implement the high standards they display into his game.

“It’s been really good, just the experience they pass on to us younger ones that we can take into our games, it just gives us more confidence.” Martin said in the pre-season. 

Noah featured in the Raiders first match of the Pre-Season Challenge against the Eels, where the 18-year-old scored the final try capping off a great individual performance.

Along with the experienced players, Noah had the opportunity to complete a preseason with his older brother Jordan. 

Despite overcoming an ACL injury sustained last year, Jordan played an important role in reminding his younger brother to keep his eyes on the bigger picture.  

“If I get an injury, he is always there telling me just to look at the bigger picture so it's good to have him there for support,” he said. 

Noah and Jordan finally got to play alongside each other in Green, where they defeated the Roosters 36-28 in round 12.

Martin will also play alongside Raider #396 Chevy Stewart, who will represent his state for the second time in the fullback position.
