Veteran St Kilda skipper Nick Riewoldt is poised to re-sign with the AFL club for another season, according to coach Alan Richardson.
Ahead of their clash with frontrunners North Melbourne on Sunday afternoon, Richardson said that 33-year-old had been invigorated by the Saints’ progress this season.
Richardson says securing Riewoldt for another season would be a huge boost for his young playing group.
