“Ultimately, footy is fun, you play football to play in the finals. “Sometimes it gets lost on you – and we’ve had the opportunity to play in a lot of big games and a lot of finals – you look at Robbie Taran, who hasn’t played in a final for eight years,” Riewoldt said.

“We had a weekly result where we went in and out of maybe the top eight in round 18 or 19 and we talked about it.

He[Tartant]was sitting there and he said, ‘You guys have to remember this is great … I just want to play in the finals. I haven’t played finals for eight years.’ Sit back and go ‘Oh, yeah.’

“When we made it to safety in the 22nd round, I think it was a very special moment for that back row team as well, when they said to Robbie, ‘We’ve reached a bit.'”

Tarrant has only played in four finals in his AFL career.

Riewoldt played in 15 in comparison.
