So Rioli said after the game when asked by BT how he was feeling: "it's (assuming he meant premiership) something that probably won't ever happen again"
I'd say more referring to the year as a whole, or the game in general. Grand final in Brisbane, at night, hubs, all of that. He's not a great media speaker our Dan

Only player who peaked in 2017. At one point looked like he was the next Betts, but not sure what strengths he brings now. Also the more Dusty plays forward the less look in he gets. Under most pressure to hold spot.

Had a mare but to be fair so did a few others. Lunch, Astbury and Houli (albeit injured) were ordinary also.

I thought Astbury and lynch were good.
Lynch was running like a gazelle after half time and Ash did his job and stop meat loaf.

Rioli needs a very good off-season. If he comes back in 2021 and plays like he did this year - trade bait.

Just watching the rd1 game v carlton on foxfooty and rioli looked sharp confident and direct. Reckon it was his best game of the year and remember him playing well. The 80 day iso wasn't good for Dan and hope he has a ripping preseason and can return in similar form

He fumble more in the last 4 weeks then Brendan Bower did in a season.
He didn't look sharp.
He made some howlers in the GF.

Rioli and Castagna will need to be on their toes next season, Aarts had a very good debut season and will only get better.

Yep flicked over just as Rioli was burning off Weitering and Docherty :) , Dan is one player that could massively improve his output in 2021 and make us better.

You could see Daniel was getting too far ahead of himself in the GF. Throughout the whole Finals actually.

Needs to focus on the ball and collect it first instead of thinking ahead and taking your eyes off it.

Another thing that winces me is the ability to take the extra half a second to steady before taking a ping at goal.

Happens all the time where players get a shot at goal and uneccessarily rush the kick and miss it.

That is all for today. Thank you, goodnight :p

One of the things that is forgotten about this year is that we played almost all our games at night in Queensland with dew and had some wet weather games. Rioli is one who is much better in dry weather and has trouble handling a wet ball.
Watching the grand final his work rate was very high but he didn’t handle the ball well at all

I wonder if Rioli is a chance to be our next small forward turned Norm Smith runner up half back?
i reckon having the field open in front of him would suit, and if we can make Houli and Short decent defensively Rioli shouldnt have any problems.
