One of the greatest footballers of the modern era.


As one of the modern game's greatest and beloved players, Matthew 'Richo' Richardson draws upon a long and successful sporting career in sharing his passion and experience as a speaker and motivator.

Current work

Following his retirement in 2010, Richo joined the Seven Network AFL telecast team, initially as a boundary rider and then as a member of the Friday and Saturday night commentary teams, proving himself a popular and insightful expert. He also appears on the Thursday night edition of Seven News Melbourne alongside Sandy Roberts, to preview the weekend's AFL action, as a panelist on Channel 7's AFL Game Day, and is a member of the 3AW Football radio commentary team.

Previous experience

Football: Undoubtedly one of the Richmond Football Club's greatest ever players, Richo's sensational skills on the field include being the leading goal kicker for the Tigers on 13 occasions, three All Australian selections and a Jack Dyer Medal. Tenacious and determined, he was renowned for his marking prowess, speed and work rate, and in his 282 games with the club consistently gave his all, inspiring a legion of loyal fans.

A true, passionate, outstanding and loyal Tiger, he will not only go down as one of Richmond's all time greats, but as one of the game's most entertaining and spectacular forwards of all time.
