Bio

Hawke's Bay wing Richard Buckman was a Hurricanes squad member for the first time in 2012, making his starting debut the same year on the right wing against the Crusaders in round nine in Wellington.

A member of the Hurricanes Wider Training Group in 2011, Buckman made his Super Rugby debut for the Hurricanes that season against the Lions off the bench, earning a second cap in his final match of the season against the Crusaders, after being called in as injury cover. He offers speed and versatility with his ability to cover both wing and centre. 

Buckman was a Hurricanes Wider Training Group member in 2013, before joining the Highlanders in 2014 as a full squad member, returning there in 2015.
