HE wasn’t best on ground in the Grand Final.
But Jack Riewoldt was surely best on ground from 6PM onwards.
The Richmond forward won a premiership and sung ‘Mr Brightside’ with The Killers on Saturday — and just to top it off, produced a hilarious speech at the club’s Family Fun Day celebrations on Sunday.
“I’ve got to cut the premiership celebrations short because I’m going on tour with The Killers,” he joked.
“I was trending more than Donald Trump last night. What a win.”

Riewoldt struggled a bit early against Adelaide, but steadied the ship in the second quarter.
“It was just a bit of relief (when I kicked a goal) — I missed three in the first,” he said.
And a few massive grabs didn’t hurt either.
“I was pretty happy with those. A couple of hangers, why not, hey?” Riewoldt said.
“It was the greatest feeling ever. The preliminary final was great also, we had a sea of yellow and black … we couldn’t have gotten through like we did without the support of the fans.
“Yellow and black, it’s in our blood.”
And with his voice sounding a little bit worse for wear — most Tigers clearly having enjoyed the night before — he called for the partying to continue.
“I saw a few scenes of Swan Street last night. Let’s go and do it again, why not?”
