Both boys interviewed today on Best on Ground for around 2 mins and both moving around and at all times looked almost exactly the same height. The RFC website also has them both at 179cm now after last year having Mj at 173cm

Not sure much else can be said i think
You’re right again.
I saw him standing next to Soldo on the TV later on and there wasn’t much in it either

It wasn’t just his pressure, his ball in hand and ability to hit up targets at full tilt was a delight. That pass to Martin was a delight. Perfectly placed and weighted.

So good at the ground sitting up high where you can see him coming but the player with the ball can’t. The murmur of impending doom rippling around the ground is fantastic. Clearly MRJ faster than the speed of sound because the victim is helpless.

They should play the Jaws music as he closes in on an opponent.

The little tap to Dusty and the basketball bounce and control was Cyril like.

Yeah commented on this at the game, was a perfect pass to Dusty. Add that to the run down tackles, the little taps, we have a quick, super smart player here. He will be a beaut but then his name is Rioli so its kind of written in the stars.

AFL and the club missed a big opportunity on the weekend to celebrate the Tiwi grand final between the imalu tigers and whatever magpies. Same weekend, 2 Riolis playing, potentially could have cut to the Tiwi grand final at half time if they had some awareness and planning…. Big miss

Fewer Riolis is a bad thing. We need to find more of them.

yes.

there should be a Category-Rioli (Cat-R)

infinity large list portion,

if the original Rioli played 100 games for your team, in its original form.

The Bummers get them all if picked after 40 from now on as the Tiwi Island’s is their academy zone.

I reckon he'll get the number 18 next season. Locker next to Dan's 17.

Was pretty poor today unfortunately. 1 effective disposal, 4 turnovers. Very fumbly and a bit off the pace. Been good experience but may end up back in the VFL soon.

Yeah, I thought he looked hesitant and less sure of himself than last week. Will stay in for dreamtime you'd think.

Struggled I thought too.

A lot of almost moments, fumbly, most of tackles didn’t stick and run down a few times.

With Dreamtime next week maybe he gets another go???
