A speedster from a famous footballing family, Ed Richards has barely skipped a beat since he was picked up in the 2017 National Draft. Closely related to Collingwood legends Ron and Lou Richards and Charlie Pannam Senior, it is at the Western Bulldogs where Ed is forging his own path.
Debuting in Round 2, Richards did not miss another game in his debut season, finishing 2018 with a Rising Star nomination to go with his 21 games. Most often seen running off half-back, Richards speed and kicking efficiency allow him to break lines and open up play.
After another consistent year in 2019, Richards raced to his 50 game milestone in Round 10 of the 2020 season.
