Score of AFC Richmond and its players
AFC Richmond has a rating of 4 starssomething that can be surprising for a team that is suffocating to stay in the first division.

Sam Obisanya and Dani Rojasup-and-coming members of the Nelson Road roster, are also above 80. But if EA Sports wants to stay true to the series’ trajectory, perhaps they should consider upgrading to EA Sports 24.
