Jack Riewoldt celebrates one of his four goals against Hawthorn on Sunday.

Triple Richmond premiership star key forward Jack Riewoldt has recorded his highest tally of goals in the opening two rounds of an AFL season.

Riewoldt followed up his four-goal opening round performance against Carlton with another four-goal haul in the Tigers’ Round 2 victory over Hawthorn at the MCG yesterday.


The previous best goal return by Riewoldt in the first two rounds of a season, throughout his 15-season career at the game’s highest level, was in 2013.

He went goalless in Round 1 that season against Carlton but booted seven goals the following week v St Kilda.

Riewoldt, a 10-time winner of the Club’s leading goalkicker award, the Michael Roach Medal, finished the 2013 season with 58 goals.
