Shane Edwards Biography

Saturday, 2 June 2018
Premiership hero Shane Edwards will finish his career as a Richmond great after another blistering display on the big stage, according to coach Damien Hardwick.

Edwards finished with a game-high 31 disposals, two goals and three direct score assists in the Tigers' Dreamtime at the 'G win, to stamp himself as the competition's No.1 set-up player.

"He's got one thing that makes him an incredible talent and a very underrated talent in my view, he makes those around him better," Hardwick said.

"You look at his score assists on a weekly basis, not only this week but throughout his career.

"He'll go down as one of the greats of our footy club, I reckon."

Shane Edwards will wear No.67 for the Dreamtime at the 'G clash against Essendon in round 10 in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the referendum to include indigenous Australians in the census.

"I am proud to wear the No.67 to commemorate such a significant year in our history," Edwards said.

"The changes to the Constitution provided an important step forward for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and this is an opportunity to celebrate it."

Thursday, 10 March 2016
Richmond's round one preparations have been thrown into a tailspin after four key players suffered injuries in the Tigers' 48-point NAB Challenge loss to Port Adelaide.

The Tigers were left licking their wounds at Etihad Stadium as Shane Edwards, Shaun Grigg, Reece Conca and Jacob Townsend were all cut down.

Edwards suffered an apparent collarbone injury at the end of the first quarter and was sent for scans with his left arm in a sling.

Grigg then suffered a hand injury while Townsend left the ground on a stretcher after leading with his head to tackle Hamish Hartlett.

Conca suffered his fourth hamstring injury in the past 12 month.

Friday, 15 January 2016
Richmond has made two additions to its leadership group for 2016, with midfielder Trent Cotchin retained for his fourth year as captain.

Reigning club champion Alex Rance has been added to the five-man leadership group, along with small forward Shane Edwards.

Vice-captains Brett Deledio and Ivan Maric remain in official leadership roles, which are voted on by the players in consultation with the coaches, while defenders Steven Morris and Troy Chaplin have been omitted.

Shane Edwards says his addition to Richmond's leadership group would give him confidence to speak up more around the club.

"Iíve been pretty shy, so itís good to know that Iíve got the backing of my teammates and coaches," Edwards said.

"Iíve got fairly good personal relationships with a good mix at the club, which I think will help develop younger players and also mix that with the older players.

"I need to get better in a lot of areas overall, and I need to be a lot louder than what I am, so this is hopefully giving me the confidence to do that."

Monday, 26 October 2015
Shane Edwards signs a new three-year deal with Richmond that will keep him at the club until the end of 2019.

Edwards was due to become a free agent at the end of next season, but the Tigers moved quickly to add another three years to his existing deal.

"To have Shane extend his contract for a further three years, with a year still to run on his current deal, is a great result," Richmond's general manager of football Dan Richardson said.

"He's a real favourite with teammates and supporters alike, and is also developing into a fine leader around the club."

Tuesday, 15 September 2015
The AFL Umpires department has conceded it should have rewarded a tackle by Richmond's Shane Edwards during the tense final quarter of Sunday's elimination final against North Melbourne.

With 7.26 left on the clock, Edwards laid a perfect tackle on Kangaroo Ben Cunnington, who disposed of the ball incorrectly after having prior opportunity.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick labeled the non-decision 'diabolical' after his team went down by 17 points.

"Yes it is (holding the ball)," head of AFL umpires Hayden Kennedy said.

"Brett (Rosebury) wasn't in the perfect position with the players in front of him to make that call."

Cunnington admitted to thinking he had given away the free when tackled by Edwards.

"I remember getting the handball receive and I remember a few boys yelling out, 'You're hot'. I just tried to get it on to my boot and kick it as quickly as I could," Cunnington said.

"But the player came across quickly enough that he was tackling me and I thought I was gone once I went to ground.

"You get off the ground a bit slowly but the ball played on, so I was a bit relieved because it definitely would have been a shot on goal."

Saturday, 11 July 2015
Richmond faces a nervous wait to know if Shane Edwards has suffered a serious leg injury after he left the MCG on crutches.

There were fears that Edwards had suffered a crack in his lower right leg before he was substituted from Richmond's 30-point win over Carlton at the MCG.

Shane Edwards will be sidelined for up to three weeks after scans revealed a hairline crack in his right fibula.

Edwards was substituted from the Tigers' 30-point win over Carlton in the third term and left the MCG on crutches.

The 26-year-old limped from the ground before being assessed by trainers and made a brief attempt to run out the injury, which was quickly aborted.

He underwent scans on Saturday and the club confirmed he'd miss its next 2-3 games.
