Daniel Rioli’s debut season with the Richmond footy club saw the 19 year old play 18 games, an impressive achievement indeed for a first year player.

The impressive showing saw Rioli (pictured) voted the clubs best first year player but with that goes extra pressure going into the 2017 season.

A member of one of footys most  celebrated families, Daniel says while he rarely talks footy with cousin Cyril, it’s a relief to have someone close to talk to when the pressure comes on.
