Joined Club 06/06/2019

Although born in St Albans, Richard was brought up in Chorley where he got his first taste of RL with Chorley Panthers under 15s. From there he entered the Academy systems at Salford Red Devils and Castleford, but it was with Oldham that he made his debut in the professional game in 2013.

In 2014 Richard had a spell in Australia with Cairns District League Club, Atherton Roosters, but he returned to England in early 2015 with Whitehaven. He soon moved back to Oldham, helping the Roughyeds to the League 1 title in 2015.

After suffering relegation with Oldham he transferred to near neighbours Rochdale Hornets, but was playing Rugby Union with Sedgley Park Tigers when the Lions offered him a way back to the Championship in June 2019.

An experienced winger, Richard also has nine Italy caps to his name, having qualified through parentage.
