Biography

Richardson and his brother Wayne were vital parts of the Victoria Park machine for many years during one of Collingwood’s most frustrating eras.

Max joined the Magpies from South Fremantle and played in a number of positions. He could ruck-rove, but also excelled in defence.

A regular Victorian representative, Richardson was runner-up in Collingwood’s best and fairest in 1974 and was club captain in 1977.

He crossed to Fitzroy in 1979 and gave the Lions two solid seasons.

His nephew, Mark, later played 141 games for the club.
