Richmond spearhead Jack Riewoldt believes he can get himself back among the league’s most prolific goalkickers next season, setting himself a lofty target for 2020.

Riewoldt played just 13 games after an injury-hit campaign and booted 24 goals across the year alongside Tom Lynch, Riewoldt’s lowest total since 2008.

The 31-year-old returned to training on Monday with the rest of the Tigers’ premiership-winning squad, as pre-season training got underway.

Speaking on his Balls & Bumpers podcast with Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin, Riewoldt said he believed he could boot at least 60 goals this season.

“Over and under I think it’s probably 60 … that’s probably the line,” Riewoldt said.

Only Jeremy Cameron and Ben Brown kicked over 60 in 2019.

Riewoldt also touched on his longevity in the game, saying “I reckon I’ve got at least three years in me.”

The veteran forward has 631 goals to his name over the course of his career and is fourth all-time among Tigers behind Jack Titus (970 goals), Matthew Richardson (800) and Kevin Bartlett (778).
