Chris ‘Cabbage’ Riewoldt was a member of a famous Tasmanian youth team that defeated all comers, including a powerful Victorian team in 1977. He went on to carve a rich career with Clarence and Tasmania through the next decade and a half. Riewoldt’s unorthodox kicking style did not undermine his effectiveness as a ruckman and key position player.
