Siposs learning from the best

Arryn Siposs

St. Kilda utility Arryn Siposs is relishing the opportunity to forge a goal-kicking partnership with Saints skipper Nick Riewoldt.

The 20-year-old had five scoring shots on Friday night against Collingwood, booting two goals and impressing with a string of long-range efforts.

Siposs, who has played the majority of his 19 AFL games as a skilful back flanker and wingman, joined his captain in the forward 50 against the Magpies and had the best seat in the house for another dominant Riewoldt display of high marking and relentless running.

“He’s an absolute gun of the game,” Siposs said. “He’s going to be a future legend of the club.”

Siposs isn’t intimidated by Riewoldt’s presence, instead relishing the role he is required to play within a diverse forward-line that includes smalls  Stephen Milne and Ahmed Saad.

“I try to play around him (Riewoldt) but obviously when I get my chance to go then I have to take my opportunity as well,” he said.

While he admittedly loves kicking goals, Siposs isn’t concerned where he plays, having proven that he can contribute sufficiently in a variety of roles.

“[I’ll play] wherever they want me, I’ll put my hand up and really just try and put in 100% effort all the time.”

“I’m happy to play anywhere just as long as I’m in the 22.”

Despite the 26-point loss, Siposs said that he thought the Saints played “some pretty good footy at times against a great side.”

“It was a good challenge,” he said. “The effort was there [tonight], we just need to try and do it for four quarters.”
