Jack Riewoldt coughing up blood, in doubt for Saturday

Richmond star Jack Riewoldt is in doubt for Saturday’s clash with St Kilda after coughing up blood during the club’s loss to West Coast yesterday, according to Sam McClure.

“Right on the three quarter time siren, Jack Riewoldt bumped Liam Duggan as he was kicking,” McClure told SEN Afternoons.

“He came off second best from that bump. He was actually coughing up blood at three quarter time.

“That caused a little bit of an issue when they were coming home.

“It meant that they had to tell Virgin Airways staff the nature of Riewoldt’s injury and then the club doctor had to have a few conversations with one of the pilots, the captain, of the flight coming home.

“Riewoldt ended up flying home business class, he was eventually cleared to fly.

“It will put him in some doubt against the Saints on Saturday.”

The Tigers battle the Saints on Saturday afternoon at the MCG.
