Riewoldt rapt with Tiger cubs

JLT 2: Riewoldt on youth Jack Riewoldt speaks to Fox Footy after the JLT match against North Melbourne.

Star Richmond premiership key forward Jack Riewoldt has expressed his excitement with the emerging playing talent at Tigerland.

“We’re evolving as a group. We’ve got a lot of young guys coming through playing good footy,” he told ‘Fox Footy’ following the Tigers’ 70-point win against North Melbourne in last Wednesday night’s JLT Community Series match at Ikon Park.

“Corey Ellis has really impressed over the last two weeks and he’s put his name up there to play Round 1 . . .

“We’re seeing guys like Corey and Shai Bolton really putting their hands up.”

Riewoldt also liked what he saw from young rookie tall forward Callum Moore throughout the second half of the Tigers’ JLT Community Series match against North Melbourne at Ikon Park last Wednesday night.

Moore, who entered the action after half-time, had seven disposals, five score involvements and kicked two goals in a lively display.

“I was really excited to see the way he played . . . He could be a real option for us going forward,” Riewoldt said.
