Healey won 58 per cent of the vote to be selected at scrum-half for the Tigers Walk of Legends.
Healey says he would want Richards to play in front of him at the base of the scrum.
Apart from myself, my first name would be Dean Richards, he jokes. Not only was he a great player for the club but he was also a great coach. He would be my second name!
Supporters can join Healey in the Walk of Legends, which will be unveiled on the approach to the new Caterpillar Stand at Welford Road, by purchasing an exclusive engraved commemorative brick to lie alongside the names of the club's greatest-ever players.
