With his reconstructed hamstrings and new endurance-based fitness campaign, Rioli took his game to another level in 2015, which by any measurement was his best for the Hawks. Kicked 42 goals, including a career-best six against Geelong in round 20. He was No. 1 for goal assists (28) and third for tackles (104). Back to full fitness, Rioli missed just two games – he was sidelined for 13 matches the year before – and his new-found durability allowed him to play some great burst football through the midfield. Rioli’s last two weeks of the season were sublime, with key goals in the preliminary final and then a best-on-ground performance in the Grand Final. Re-signed until the end of 2019.
