St Kilda champion Nick Riewoldt has revealed his predictions for the 2019 season, and he believes his former club is trending in the right direction.

Riewoldt has named the Saints as the biggest club improvement from any side this season, while tipping Sydney to go the other way and slide the furthest.

West Coast's Josh Kennedy will take home the Coleman Medal according to the former full forward, while his cousin Jack Riewoldt will taste premiership success for the second time in three years, with Riewoldt predicting the Tigers to be crowned the premiers.

Carlton might struggle at times this season but Riewoldt believes they'll have something to cheer about when the season is over, with star midfielder Patrick Cripps his tip for the Brownlow.

For SEN Breakfast, Riewoldt was also asked to make a big call for the season ahead, and he's heading towards a coaching merry-go-round towards the end of the campaign.

Riewoldt believes as many as five coaches "are going to be under real pressure to keep their jobs."
