Steve Martin's Career Pathway Profile 
Career Snapshot :

Steve Martin was originally an Australian Rules footballer in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales but switched to rugby league and spent 1975–1976 playing for Barrow in English club football. He came to the notice of first-grade clubs in Australia when he represented Riverina in the 1976 Amco Cup competition.

Martin debuted for Manly in 1978 and was selected for New South Wales as five-eighth. In the same year he played in both the grand final and the grand final replay win over Cronulla. Martin toured with the Kangaroos at the end of 1978, playing in eleven tour matches and one Test against France. Martin finished his debut season as the NSWRL Rookie of the Year.

Martin was selected to represent New South Wales as an interchange for the inaugural State of Origin game in 1980.

After several positional changes at Manly, Martin moved to Balmain in an effort to consolidate his career at halfback but a series of shoulder injuries kept him from his previous form. In 1983–1984, Martin played for Leeds in England.
