Jack Riewoldt was forced to leave on Friday night after suffering a nasty gash to his head during the clash between Richmond and Sydney.

The Tigers veteran contested an air ball as he collided with Swans star Hayden McLean, and immediately reached for his head with his right hand, knowing he had suffered an injury.

Blood poured from the striker’s face as he left the field at Adelaide Oval, with his worried coach Damien Hardwick watching.

“He knew right away,” Abbey Holmes of Channel Seven said. “I heard it from here at ground level, a huge crash and he straightens up and goes straight.”

Riewoldt was patched up by the Tigers’ medical staff and returned to the field wearing a bandana, with fans praising the 34-year-old’s bravery.
