TBH, I think the fact that he is planning to relocate to Melbourne is a pretty sure sign he will not be going to Freo. I'd be more concerned about uncle Cyril trying to get him to Hawthorn.
There's no chance he's getting to Hawthorn without first coming to us. If we want him, he's ours. At least for a couple of years.

Spot on with the relocation plans though. I reckon he watched Daniel in the prelim and started dreaming of the tigers just a little bit more  :thumbsup

Ok so a Richmond supporter called out the journo who wrote that article on twitter about the interstate f/s rule and she said she asked the AFL and they told her the rule hasn't changed and there's no mention of it expiring in the official 2017 AFL season guide:

Fremantle show interest in potential father-son Maurice Rioli Jr (PerthNow)

Fremantle Dockers show interest in potential father-son draftee Maurice Rioli Jr

Jordan McArdle,
PerthNow
6 November 2017


MAURICE Rioli Jr isn’t eligible to be drafted until 2020, but that hasn’t stopped Fremantle keeping tabs on the father-son prospect.

At 15 years old, Maurice Rioli Jr — the son of late WAFL and VFL champion Maurice — became the youngest St Mary’s Northern Territory Football League debutant in six seasons last weekend.

He booted one goal in St Mary’s first win of the season — a 73-point thrashing of Waratah at TIO Stadium — playing as a half-forward.

And Saints coach Rick Nolan revealed the Dockers were among “several” AFL clubs already inquiring about the Tiwi Islander.

“I know he’s on the radar already, I’ve had a few clubs contact me,” Nolan told The Sunday Times.

Maurice Jr’s father played 168 games for South Fremantle and 118 at Richmond, meaning both the Dockers (150-plus games for eligible WAFL club) and Tigers (100-plus VFL games) can snap him up under the father-son rule in his draft year.

He has the choice of which club he would like to nominate for, or can elect to ignore both clubs and go into the 2020 national draft. But Fremantle will be up against it to lure him to WA, with the teen star planning to board at Scotch College in Melbourne next year.

He has several AFL-playing relatives in Victoria including Daniel Rioli (Richmond), Cyril Rioli (Hawthorn), Ben Long (St Kilda) and Jake Long (Essendon).

He is favoured to join his premiership-winning nephew Daniel in the yellow and black.

Nolan said Rioli Jr had earned his debut after a standout pre-season, and showed enough to hold his spot.

“He wasn’t best on ground, but he certainly looked the part out there,” Nolan said.

Nolan said while the youngster showed traits of his famous football family and “played like a Rioli”, there was a long way to go.

“He’s a very, very shy young boy and the whole thing has got to be taken slowly,” he said. “He’s got enormous talent, but we’ve also got to be sensible with the approach and the expectation with it as well.

“He’ll go back to our under-16s or under-18s in a couple of weeks and we’ll let him be a kid.”

Terrific that the sons of Tiger greats Dale Weightman and Craig Lambert are training with Richmond VFL. Good luck to Kyle Weightman and Bailey Lambert. Tigers do it very well at VFL level - and AFL level too!

Maurice Rioli jnr follows Cyril's path to the AFL (afl site)

Another Rioli follows Cyril's path to the AFL

THE POTENTIAL next Rioli in the AFL is taking his cousin Cyril's route to the big time.

Maurice Rioli jnr, son of Richmond's late 1982 Norm Smith medallist, is in his second week at Scotch College, the exclusive private school his cousins Cyril and Shannon both attended.

The 15-year-old's uncle, Essendon 100-gamer Dean Rioli, and Shannon, who captains Northern Territory Thunder in the NEAFL, organised his move from the Tiwi Islands to Melbourne.

Cyril Rioli was just 14 when he began boarding at Scotch, and his AFL haul so far includes 185 games, winning the 2015 Norm Smith Medal and playing in four premierships with Hawthorn.

Those in the know suggest right-footed Rioli jnr is tracking similarly to Cyril at the same age in the way he attacks the football and takes the game on.

Maurice Rioli snr played 118 games for Richmond and 168 for WAFL club South Fremantle, making his son eligible to join either the Tigers or Fremantle as a father-son selection in 2020.

Fremantle has access to the sons of ex-WAFL footballers who played at least 150 times for East Fremantle, South Fremantle, Perth or Swan Districts before the Dockers joined the AFL in 1995.

Essendon has rights to Rioli jnr, too, as part of its Next Generation Academy zone, which includes the Tiwi Islands.

But it is Richmond's race to lose, with the skilful forward-midfielder extremely close to his cousin and Tigers premiership player Daniel Rioli, who went to Ballarat's St Patrick's College.

Rioli jnr, who turns 16 in September, is yet to train at the Tigers, but makes regular appearances at Punt Rd to see Daniel and watch the reigning premiers.

Richmond list manager Blair Hartley has kept close tabs on his progress.

The talented teenager, who impressed at last year's AFL Under-16 Championships, is also related to West Coast forward Willie Rioli, St Kilda's Ben Long and Bomber Jake Long.

Rioli jnr made his senior football debut for St Mary's in October, with Cyril watching from the stands, and played his seventh and most recent match on January 20 before relocating to Melbourne.

He will play school football for Scotch College this year and again represent the NT at national under-16 level.
