With just under 20 players out of contract this year, the club has several big calls to make. And Daw, who has been one of the better stories in 2020, could be on the outer.
Riewoldt fears for the future of the Kangaroos big man, who has played four games this year after returning from a horrific hip injury.
“I think he’s in trouble, I really do,” he told Fox Footy.
“I love the story, love where he’s come from, love his fightback. But if you can’t get a game at the moment in that side then it’s probably not a good sign.

“Whether he gets an opportunity somewhere else, there might be a club out there that wants some depth in their key position posts,” he said.
“But I think you look at where North’s going and having to pretty much rip the bandaid on and start again, I think he’s in trouble.”
Speaking to media after the club’s loss to the Eagles on Thursday, North Melbourne coach Rhyce Shaw said that there will be plenty of changes at North Melbourne.
“That’s part of footy (Making tough calls). We went through that last year and this year is a little bit different being away,” he said.
“it’s just part of the evolution of the club and where it’s going and where it needs to go.
“It’s going to be a hard time for a lot of people, but it’s also going to be an exciting time for the club going forward.”
