SPEAKER(S)

Nick Riewoldt

In 2017 Riewoldt’s decorated career which spanned 17 years with St Kilda Football Club came to an end. Riewoldt played 336 games and kicked 718 goals. The key forward holds the all-time record for most marks in VFL/AFL history, is a six-time winner of the Trevor Barker Award, a five-time All Australian, St Kilda’s longest serving captain (220 games), and by any measure one of the club’s greatest ever players.

Riewoldt, who over the years has made considerable impact as an ambassador of the game, has been in a media role with Fox Footy since 2018, providing expert commentary through their football coverage and sharing his insight, experiences and passion for football as a guest weekly on AFL360.

Riewoldt also sits as Chairman of Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision, a foundation dedicated to finding a cure for bone marrow failure syndromes in honor of his sister. 


Gavin Wanganeen

Gavin Wanganeen is a two-time AFL Premiership winner, a member of the AFL Hall of Fame and a Brownlow Medallist.

His AFL career spanned 300 senior games at Essendon and Port Adelaide, where he won a SANFL Premiership as a teenager and returned to become the club’s inaugural AFL captain.

The first Indigenous player to win the Brownlow medal and to reach 300 AFL games, he continues to blaze a trail as the first Indigenous past player to be elected to the board of an AFL club with his recent election to the position of director of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

His contribution to the game in South Australia was recognised in 2014 when a stand was named in his honour at the redeveloped Adelaide Oval.

Wanganeen is now an acclaimed artist and Aboriginal activist.
