Jack Riewoldt and all Tiger fans will be hoping for a repeat of last year's game against Hawthorn

RICHMOND'S Jack Riewoldt could leap back into the top five forwards in the Official AFL Player Ratings, brought to you by Vero, if he repeats his heroics of last season when the Tigers take on Hawthorn at the MCG on Saturday.

Riewoldt booted six goals when Richmond last played the Hawks in round nine, 2012.

His effort, which was worth 28.1 player ratings points, helped guide the Tigers to an impressive 62-point win.

Riewoldt, who recently signed a new contract to stay at Punt Road for another three seasons, sits sixth on the ratings table when it comes to forwards.  

Another dominant performance against the Hawks could power him past North Melbourne's stand-in skipper, Drew Petrie, and into the top five. 

Another player who will be hoping to repeat his previous effort against an opponent is Essendon's David Zaharakis.

The dynamic midfielder won the Anzac Medal when the Bombers played Collingwood in their traditional Anzac Day clash earlier this season.

His 34 possessions and four goals equated to 28.9 player ratings points, which was seven more than any other player who featured in the match.
