Hugo is moving from 45 to 13 in 2023. Same jumper number trajectory as his dad at St Kilda.



Ralphsmith said it was "unbelievable" to be continuing the family tradition.

"I loved the No. 45 and dad wore 45, and now transitioning to a lower number in 13, you can't ask for anything more," he said.

"He's had a big inspiration to my footy and growing up, he was my junior footy coach, so he's always had a big influence.

"So, to get the number that he wore when he played his best footy, it's pretty special."

Great guernsey honour for young Rioli

By Tony Greenberg, Richmond Media - 1 hr ago

Maurice Rioli Jnr has been handed the No. 10 Richmond guernsey made famous in recent Tigerland history by triple premiership star Shane Edwards, who retired at the end of the 2022 season following an illustrious 303-game playing career at the Club.

It was Edwards’ decision to pass the No. 10 on to the exciting Tiger cub.

Rioli wore the No. 49 in 17 senior games over the course of his first two years of AFL football with Richmond, 15 of those appearances coming during an impressive 2022 season where he kicked 14 goals and provided the Tigers’ team with a significant boost through the elite defensive pressure he applied in his small forward role.

He is greatly honoured to accept Edwards’ offer of succeeding him in the No. 10 Yellow and Black guernsey.

Kaleb Smith, has been allocated the No. 49 guernsey upon request, as it was the number he wore during his promising WA cricket career, as well as that of his cricketing idol, Steve Smith.

Richmond’s second selection, Steely Green, receives the No. 48 that dual premiership Tiger Liam Baker initially wore in his Punt Road playing career.

Rookie picks Seth Campbell and Tylar Young will wear No. 44 and No. 45 respectively.

RFC website's squad page has been updated. No photos of the newbie recruits though except for (photoshop) pics of Taranto & Hopper.
