Daniel Riolis breakout year in the AFL will see the Tiwi Islander play his first AFL Grand Final on Saturday when the Tigers meet Adelaide for the 2017 flag.

In just his second year for the club, Rioli has been a revelation for the Tigers, kicking four crucial goals against the Giants on the weekend and last night receiving the award for the Goal of the Year.

With the biggest game of his life now less than a week away, Daniel (pictured) says while he’s yet to speak to cousin and multiple premiership winner Cyril Rioli, he’s looking forward to picking his brains before Saturdays first bounce.
