With vast football knowledge and a sharp sense of humour, Ricciuto shines in his role as co-host of Triple M Adelaide’s drive program, The Rush Hour. Along with providing special comments for Triple M Football, in 2011 Ricciuto joined the all-star line-up of the Fox Footy commentary team.
Debuting for the Crows as a 17-year old, Ricciuto quickly became a household name in South Australia. His reputation was confirmed with All-Australian honours in 1994, his second year in the AFL. Ricciuto would go on to achieve the honour an amazing eight times, an AFL record, while he was also selected as captain twice.
In 1998, Ricciuto was a key member of Adelaide’s back-to-back premiership side, winning his first of three club best and fairests. The year was also marked with selection in the Australian International Rules team to take on Ireland.
Since finishing his decorated football career Ricciuto has been recognised by being inducted as an AFL Life Member and a Hall of Fame inductee. Ricciuto is also still connected to the Adelaide Crows as current board member of the club.
A successful publican and hotelier, Ricciuto resides in Adelaide with his wife Sarah and their six children.
