The magician enjoyed probably his best season at Hawthorn in 2016 with career-high goals (47) and tackles (128) and in 21 games he was kept goalless only twice. His roost from outside 50m in round 17 to kick the match-winning goal against Sydney proved his hamstrings were well and truly repaired. His contested marking was also a treat. Little wonder he earned his third All-Australian selection. The Hawks might be entering a period of transition, but while Rioli is at the peak of his powers, he gives supporters a reason to come to the footy every week.
