Daniel Rioli cut a proud figure on Melville Island.

The two-time Tigers premiership star welcomed a very special guest to his Tiwi Islands home this week β€” the 2019 premiership cup.

Rioli, 22, said it was a β€œbucket list” item ticked to have taken the famous trophy back to his community in Pirlangimpi this week to share Richmond’s flag glory with his close family and friends.

β€œIt was so good. I missed the 2017 one β€” I didn’t get the chance to bring it up, because I had no idea of the process of how to get it over here,” he said.

β€œIn 2018, when West Coast won, (my cousin) Willie took it over to Bathurst (Island). I was a bit jealous.

β€œWhen we won this year, it was always on my bucket list to make sure we brought it over. We've got that ticked off. Just walking around the community and showing it off was such a good feeling.

β€œIt was pretty special.”

Rioli and a throng of community members met the cup at the island’s airport, with the trophy escorted north by club chief executive Brendon Gale.

The dual-premiership forward took the trophy to visit his family, including parents Bradley Rioli and Belinda Punguatji and his grandmother Helena Kalippa before a trip to his former school for a bit of β€œshow and tell” and a football clinic.

β€œI was over the moon,” Rioli told the Herald Sun.

β€œEverywhere I went, I had kids hanging off me β€” I was literally holding the cup in my arms and just walking around the community. Kids were dangling off me, holding my top. It was just awesome.”

The cup then hit the water, joining Rioli and a number of his family members for a spot of fishing.

β€œWe caught heaps of snappers, and a few of the Richmond guys caught sharks β€” even a hammerhead shark,” he said.

β€œIt was pretty cool.”

Both of Rioli’s premiership medals are with him but he admitted that he had forgotten to take them with him on the cup tour.

He will stay in Pirlangimpi for another week before a quick stop off in Noosa before the premiers’ pre-season training begins.

β€œI’ll spend a week there, and then back to the grind,” he laughed.

The cup visited Darwin on Wednesday, giving top end Tigers fans a chance to see the trophy. It will travel around the country in coming weeks before returning to Punt Road for a fan event on November 23.

Star midfield prospect Tom Green lives in Canberra and is the Giants’ top academy prospect. But he’s always been a fan of Richmond – the club his grandfather Michael won four premierships at during the 1960s and β€˜70s.

As Green puts it, the most recent AFL Grand Final week was β€œa bit conflicting” due to his allegiances.

β€œI’ve got the family tie to Richmond, who I’ve always supported, and GWS, I trained there over summer and I know a lot of the people at the club and the players,” he tells foxfooty.com.au.

β€œI did support Richmond – and that’s who I was always going to support – but if GWS had won I wouldn’t have been disappointed because I did want to see those boys do well.”

I remember getting caught up in the whole media circus in the week leading up to the GF about how the Giants were going to unleash the pain on us. As soon as I saw Cotch take down Mumford I was like, what the fu** was I worried about.

That was exactly the same moment when I knew the flag was ours.

Not me, I was still humming and harrrin' in the first frantic Q thinking jeez they are matching us and keeping up all over the ground! Then Rioli kicked that goal!
That's when I started to breath a tad easier thinking we can build on that! :thumbsu: :)πŸ‘

In hindsight, we never should have worried. Whenever a side wins every week to make the GF and faces an opponent who had a week's rest, it's always a one sided result.

My thought after the game was that Rioli's goal was the turning point. After watching it a couple of times I reckon Dusty's goal in the 2nd might have been because that would have really made the Giants' shoulders slump!!
