Richards was a member of the inaugural 2005 Wests Tigers premiership winning side. He featured in arguably one of the most memorable moments in Grand Final history when he received a magical flick pass from Benji Marshall and went on to score a superb try.
In 2005, Richards scored a then club record of 20 tries in a season for Wests Tigers. He scored 26 tries in 39 games for Wests Tigers from 2004-2005.
Richards left Wests Tigers at the end of 2005 to join Wigan where he has been a revelation in the English Super League. Richards has been the top points scorer in the Super League on four occasions. He is currently the competition’s leading points scorer this season.
Richards said he is very excited to be returning to the NRL with the Wests Tigers, a Club close to his heart.
“I have some incredible memories from my time previously at the Club,’’ Richards said.
“The premiership success in 2005 created a special bond amongst the players and with the supporters.
