The improved fitness levels of Tigers’ key forwards, Jack Riewoldt and Ty Vickery have been noticed by Richmond’s forwards coach, Mark Williams, during their pre-season training.

Riewoldt has been working hard on the track, before getting back into full competitive training, after his post-season surgeries.

Williams expects Riewoldt to return to full training in the next week.

“He’s ready to go now, he just has to pass a few little medical tests to make sure he’s strengths up, and he’ll be right back into full training. And just knowing Jack, he’s dying to get back into it,” Williams told Roar Vision.

“He looks really fit, he’s starting to build his strength as well, which is exciting. He’s a very smart player, which is important for us.”

Williams also praised the efforts of Ty Vickery, who is back into full training, since his recovery from the shoulder injury which sidelined him halfway through last season.

“He’s been really impressive, his work rate has been outstanding. He’s been doing a lot of running with Alex Rance,” said Williams.

“The really impressive thing has been his contested marking, it’s been outstanding. He’s been running really good patterns and building good synergy with Luke McGuane and Aaron Edwards.”
