With those four sides currently sitting inside the double chance places, Riewoldt believes they’re the four best teams in the competition – but almost in the reverse order.
While Collingwood would be the logical selection for Riewoldt’s fifth seed, the former Saint has the Western Bulldogs ahead of them, given the Dogs have won seven of their past 10 to storm into finals calculations.
“We’ve got the big four. I think Richmond and West Coast are the one and two seeds, despite being three and four on the ladder,” Riewoldt told SEN Breakfast.
“Call Brisbane and Geelong the three and four seeds. Are the Bulldogs the fifth-best team?
“At the moment (I have Collingwood behind the Bulldogs). It depends who (Collingwood) gets back.”
SEN Breakfast co-host Garry Lyon echoed Riewoldt’s sentiments, suggesting the Dogs could shake up the finals should they make it.
“They’re going to play the Giants in the first week of finals (if they finish seventh) and they just made a mess of the Giants.”
