Kenneth Henry Llewellyn Richards played for Cardiff (114 games) and Bridgend before transferring to Rugby League and playing for Salford. His Welsh debut came in 1960 against South Africa, the first of five Welsh Caps. Richards was noted for his drop goals and would often take penalties and conversions using the drop goal rather than placing the ball on the ground.
