Richards all playing well
I don't doubt you're right but unless he went down with an injury or was pulled out, 13 touches in a big VFL win is still a bit of a problem. It's just not close to where he needs to be in terms of involvement. He needs to be touching the ball a lot more at this level (particularly when we dominate) before I'd be comfortable picking him again.

Used a bit off half back .. stats aren't everything. His second efforts, speed and effiency have been good

They aren't everything, and I'm glad to hear he's going well, but you can't have a predominantly outside player playing away from the ball for the majority of a match.

He wasn't dropped for his skill, speed or second efforts - he was dropped because he just can't get involved in the game. He has to grow in that area to be effective at AFL level.

Then he should be played on the wing in the vfl which he hasn't been today .. he's half forward now

VitalDread is the Shaun Edwards named for us in the VFL this week the one who played a few games for Essendon and GWS?

Would make sense with what Gordon has been saying.
