Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: East Sandringham JFC (VIC)
Debut: 2013
Recruited from: Sandringham Dragons U18
Brownlow Votes: -

Very much in the mould of his older brother, Richards is a dour defender with few frills but is reliable close to goal. Made just one senior appearance last year – ironically replacing his brother who missed the round 19 clash against West Coast with concussion – and slotted nicely into the side. Should be pushing for more senior games after a fantastic season in the NEAFL in 2015.

Draft history: 2013 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 29.
