He won’t be remembered forever as another famous smother involving his cousin Nick, but Jack Riewoldt’s interruption of a Joel Selwood kick was a work of art

Where Heath Shaw used desperation and speed to keep former Saints star Nick Riewoldt from kicking a major instead of goalie in the 2010 Grand Final, Jack showed ingenuity

Richmond’s key forward looked good and really out of the game when he found himself on the ground in a peloton on Geelong’s attacking half-line with his team leading by three points in third quarter

But as Selwood took possession and looked to send the Cats back within 50m as they pushed to regain the lead, supine Riewoldt said no to my watch

It all happened so fast that Channel 7 commentator Brian Taylor thought the Geelong captain was « getting some fresh air »

But reruns showed the Tigers’ spearhead cleverly slipped his boot into the proceedings right after Selwood dropped his ball

The result was a brilliant choke that left Selwood scratching his head and Hawthorn’s hero Luke Hodge praising Riewoldt for « staying in the room while he was down »
