Star Richmond spearhead Jack Riewoldt has become just the sixth player in the Club’s history to reach the 500-goal milestone.

Riewoldt chalked up goal No. 500, when he steered through his first six-pointer in Saturday night’s clash with Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.

He finished with four goals for the match and was one of the Tigers’ best players in their five-point loss.

Those four goals took Riewoldt’s tally this season to 20, placing him in equal fifth place on the competition’s 2017 goalkicking list, just four behind Coleman Medal leader, West Coast’s Josh Kennedy.

In terms of the all-time goalkicking table at Tigerland, Riewoldt, with 503 goals, sits behind Jack Titus, 970; Matthew Richardson, 800; Kevin Bartlett, 778; Michael Roach, 607 and Dick Harris, 548.
