Goalsquare or pocket? Rioli's degree of difficulty

Jack Higgins' remarkable mid-air major from last week's win over Collingwood might be the new favourite for Goal of the Year, but teammate Daniel Rioli has jokingly suggested his 2017 winner required more effort.

Player Bio

Born into a famous football family, Rioli made his own mark in 2017 as a key member of the Tigers’ forward line.

While he has sublime skills, it was Rioli’s defensive pressure that made him one of the team’s biggest assets.

Sends shivers down the spines of opposition defenders when they have the ball and makes the hard look easy when he has it.

His four-goal performance in the preliminary final against Greater Western Sydney saw him follow in the footsteps of cousin Cyril Rioli and his late great uncle Maurice Rioli as a big-game performer.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2016; premiership side 2017.
Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Richmond) No. 15 overall.
