Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Columnist - with CYRIL RI­OLI

You’re son in your a favourite North­ern Ter­ri­tory home­town, where ap­par­ently Cyril has be­come a pop­u­lar first name. Do you get a hero’s wel­come ev­ery time you go back? I’m just Ju­nior Boy Ri­oli when I go back to the Tiwi Is­lands – and I love that. Did you play ev­ery sin­gle sport as a kid, or was it only ever AFL for you? Just foot­ball. I played lunchtime, af­ter school… I prob­a­bly should have been study­ing more. Sports broadcaste­r Bruce Mca­vaney fa­mously de­scribed you as a “de­li­cious” player. Do you think you’ll ever live it down? At lunchtime with the boys from the club, ev­ery­thing we eat is “de­li­cious”. And peo­ple will just yell it out when­ever I’m walk­ing down the street, which I al­ways have a laugh about. You’re mar­ried to your child­hood sweet­heart, Shan­nyn. Has a wash­ing ma­chine al­ways full of dirty guernseys mar­i­tal strife? led to any She def­i­nitely gets up­set when I leave them around. So I do all my own foot­ball wash­ing. NAIDOC Week runs un­til Sun­day, July 15. Cyril Ri­oli is a style men­tor for Van Heusen.
