For much of the last 17 seasons, Richmond spearhead Jack Riewoldt has been the man the Tiger Army has turned to - and the engine room has kicked to - when the Punt Roaders required a goal.

Selected with the 13th pick of the 2006 AFL Draft, Riewoldt was brought to the mainland to act as the apprentice to Richmond legend and fellow Tasmanian, Matthew Richardson.

And while Riewoldt will require 15 goals in his 347th, and final, appearance to overtake 'Richo' on Richmond's honour boards, the spearhead from Bellerive will leave a lasting imprint at Tigerland

With big bags no longer as en vogue as they were during Richo's days patrolling the goalsquare, there are good reasons why Jack won't eclipse his master.

However, you don't win 11 Michael Roach Medals and a trifecta of Colemans without going big, time and again.

Though the bounds are unwritten, hauls of five or more goals seem to be the universal standard for a 'bag' in the modern era.

By these metrics, Riewoldt has kicked 31 bags throughout the course of his 346-game career, averaging a big afternoon/evening every 11.7 games.

Whether on the biggest stage or just by going big, here are the Tasmanian Tiger's biggest bags.

Five goals - 15 occasions 

Though there are plenty of bags to choose from, any time you can go large on the last Saturday in September is going to rate highly.

A year and change after booting five during Richmond's upset loss to Collinwood in the 2018 preliminary final, Riewoldt stepped out and stepped up again, slotting 5.1 during the Tigers' 89-point rout of the GWS Giants.

It may not rate as highly as hitting high notes with 'The Killers', but there aren't many in the AFL-era that can brag of a grand final bag.

Six goals -  10 occasions

How many different ways can you kick six?

Well, there is the last-minute bag during a nailbiter to sew up a second Coleman Medal.

There is the difference-making bag. There is the kick-starter. There is the blockbuster bag. There is also the first.

Still, any time Jack got the better of cousin Nick, you can bet your bottom dollar he enjoyed those afternoons, especially when his side got the win.

Seven goals - two occasions 

If kicking six twice to sink 'Saint Nick' was good, then going one better twice more must be great.

Jack's 7.1 effort in Round 21 of the 2010 season wasn't enough to edge the Saints that day, but when the two sides met again at the 'G in May 2013, the younger of the two spearheads proved the difference, with Richmond running out 17-point winners.

Something tells us Jack enjoyed the next family get-together after that one.

Eight goals - one occasion

Though the options begin to thin as we near the summit, one fact rings true: Jack Riewoldt absolutely loved playing the Saints.

With eight goals from 11 scoring shots, Riewoldt, quite literally, proved the difference in Round 10 of the 2012 season, with the final three of this big bag coming during the final term of Richmond's eight-point win.

Nick may have managed three goals of his own, but we're tipping the then-St Kilda skipper screened a few more calls than that.

10 goals - two occasions 

Slotting ten twice? You betcha'.

In what won't come as a surprise, both of Riewoldt's 10-goal bags came during big wins in Coleman Medal-winning seasons, 2010 and 2018.

Which bag was best? We'll let you decide.

11 goals - one occasion  

Booting 11 goals in this day and age is crazy, but booting them with an accuracy of 84.6 per cent is off the charts, especially after spending the week hiding from the media.

After publicly criticising Richmond's gameplan mid-way through the 2014 season, Riewoldt also earned a hiding from then-coach Damien Hardwick.

"We caught up with him this morning and removed his foot from his mouth and my foot from his arse," Hardwick said.

"Like anything, with every action comes an equal and opposition reaction."

Facing the lowly Giants on this particular afternoon, Riewoldt - his kicking foot by then firmly on the ground - let his boot do the talking, kicking 44.8 per cent of the Tigers' total score - 69 of 154 points.

With 11 goals from 12 marks inside 50, you'd be hard-pressed to find an apology that was ever accepted with as much gusto.
