Jack is back

Jack kicks seven Jack Riewoldt kicks a bag of seven during the intra-club match.

Jack Riewoldt looked razor sharp in Richmond’s intra-club hit-out at the Swinburne Centre’s Punt Road Oval last Saturday.

The star spearhead finished with a seven-goal haul in an impressive display against the Tigers’ VFL team.

It was vintage Jack, as he led out to take numerous marks on the lead, and then confidently drilled goals from a range of angles and distances.

REPORT: Tigers go head-to-head

At one stage, he also ‘rag-dolled’ veteran small defender Steven Morris (now a permanent member of Richmond’s VFL side), to take an emphatic grab, from which he kicked truly.

And there was a trademark left-foot set-shot six-pointer, too, following a clever mark on a tight angle.

It’s very early days, of course, but the signs are good that Riewoldt is set to add plenty to his AFL career goal tally of 537 in season 2018.
