The AFL has announced Richmond’s senior coach, Damien Hardwick and Team of the Century member, Michael Green, will be inducted as AFL Life Members.

The duo, recognised for their service to the game, will be formally inducted along with six others at the AFL’s Annual General Meeting in March.

Hardwick receives his Life Membership after his combined tally of 300 AFL games as a player and coach.

Green was awarded his Life Membership for his ‘Special Service to the Game’, a decorated career of 146 games for Richmond, including four premierships in 1967, ‘69, ‘73 and ‘74.
