Season by Season
The Captain of the club and one of the finest tall forwards in the AFL, Riewoldt was the number 1 pick at the 2000 AFL National Draft.
A five-time Trevor Barker Medallist, four-time All-Australian (including 2009 when he was named Captain), and AFL Rising Star, Riewoldt has a distinguished individual record.
2012 was a fantastic rebound year for the skipper, after a knee injury significantly lessened his output in 2011. He booted a goal in every game he played, including a bag of seven against the Gold Coast in Round 11.
Riewoldt has the capacity to lead high up the ground, as well as playing deeper as a goal threat. His significance rests with his tremendous work ethic, high marking, and team-lifting leadership that will be a crucial element in St Kilda’s success this season.

Despite having one of his less dominant years in 2011, Nick Riewoldt was still crucial to the Saints appearing in their fourth finals appearance in a row.
Nick led the Saints in marks (154), uncontested marks, marks inside the 50, and finished second in goals, kicking 36.
The well decorated 29-year-old has been one of the competitions best forwards since debuting back in 2001.
His outstanding marking ability, pace and endurance make him a nightmare for opposition defences to negate.
In 2011, Nick played his 200th game for the Club and heads in to the 2012 season sitting on 473 goals.
The Saints number 1 pick in the 2000 AFL Draft, was named St Kilda’s 2012 Captain for the sixth time during his Club career. Only Danny Frawley has captained the Club on more occasions, holding the honourable position for nine seasons.
