To offer more variety than the original 'Up Close & Personal' section, we've devised a new item in order to offer an insight into the personal tastes of the players. A pack of cards has been customised with a question on each and Dean Richards is the first to pick ten cards to determine his questions...
What would you wear to a fancy dress party?
70s gear, a big afro, big pimp style.
When did you last go clubbing?
On holiday in Marbella this summer.
What do you prefer - pants or boxers?
Depends but I lean towards boxers.
What are you doing tonight?
Nothing special. Might go out for dinner.
Where is your favourite holiday destination?
Barbados. It's lovely out there and such a laid-back way of life.
Medals or money?
It's a tough one. I'd say 50-50. Obviously money is important and I suppose it goes hand in hand with being successful.
Would you change your lifestyle for anything else?
No, I'm very content at the moment.
What could you never be without?
What was the last time you cried?
I can't remember really although I was quite low when I did my cruciate ligament at Wolves. It seemed never ending, I'm sure there were times there when I felt like crying.
What is your favourite aftershave?
