Former Richmond coach Terry Wallace has declared Jack Riewoldt as the best key forward in the AFL, after speaking with SEN’s KB and The Doc.
Riewoldt enjoyed a day out at Metricon Stadium last Saturday as he booted 10 goals from 16 scoring shots in Richmonds massive 74-point victory over the Gold Coast Suns.
When asked on SEN’s KB and The Doc program on who he thinks is the league’s best key forward, Wallace had no hesitation in saying Jack Riewoldt.
But the incredible individual effort from Riewoldt last weekend wasn’t the reason for Wallace’s comments, instead pointing to his ability to link up with teammates as to why he is the best.
“He brings more other players into the contest than any other of the forwards,” Wallace said.
“Ben Brown has had a great year, fantastic year, but more of his work is straight lead out at the ball, take possession of the ball.
“He is not orchestrating as many goals, it doesn’t mean he is not having a great season, but he is not orchestrating as many goals for others as what I think Riewoldt is.
“I don’t even think Buddy (Lance Franklin) has done that this year. He still has played some outstanding games but to me, it’s really Jack Riewoldt.”
