The AFL has confirmed two changes to its All-Australian selection panel for the 2023 season, with Fremantle great Matthew Pavlich and league competition management boss Laura Kane the pair of inclusions.
The 12-person panel, chaired by AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan, will decide the 2023 All-Australian side at the conclusion of the home and away campaign.
Scott has taken on the role as the Bombers' head coach following a short stint as the general manager of football, replacing the departed Ben Rutten.
Riewoldt has taken a sabbatical for the year ahead, venturing to the United States to be closer to his family.
A fitting replacement for Riewoldt, Pavlich brings with him over 350 games of experience in the AFL, having captained Fremantle for nine seasons and booting 700 goals during his decorated time in Perth.
Kane has been with the AFL since November 2021, having held previous roles with North Melbourne as a football operations boss and lead for strategy and football operations.
The duo join a panel of household names that will assist in the process of naming the All-Australian side and Rising Star Award, with the selection committee ranging from 20th-century stars to greats of the modern era.
Kevin Bartlett, Jude Bolton, Nathan Buckley, Kane Cornes, Andrew Dillon, Glen Jakovich, Chris Johnson and Cameron Ling also make up the panel, while Kevin Sheehan will vote on the Rising Star Award only.
