Player Bio

Nine games from Riley in his first season with Melbourne was a good result given he was recovering from a broken leg and played much earlier than expected. The Demons nursed him through the season, either starting him as a substitute (four times) or subbing him off in several matches because his fitness was limited, but were happy with his output. Riley could improve his kicking, but his stoppage work is elite.

Previous AFL club: Adelaide (2011-13: 12 games, 5 goals). 

Draft history: 2010 Rookie Draft NSW scholarship selection (Adelaide) No. 58; 2011 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Adelaide) selection No. 89; 2013 delisted free agent (Melbourne).
