SD Legion would like to welcome Richard to our squad for the 2023 season.

Richard is an experienced scrum-half who has played most of his professional career in NZ. He began his professional career in 2010 and has played for Thames Valley, Counties Manukau, Bay of Plenty and also Wellington. Richard played for the Hurricanes in the Super Rugby Competition from 2018-2022. SD Legion will not be the first team Richard has played for outside of NZ, as he did play a season in Japan with Suntory Sungoliath in 2021.

“Juddy is a quality player who has been involved with rugby at a very high level in various countries for a number of years. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and a complete set of skills. He will add real firepower, clarity and composure to complement our other 9’s” from Head Coach Danny Lee

"Really excited to have an opportunity to be part of the legion family and hope to add to the success of the club. Watching the last couple of years , the MLR has grown a lot and was something that I wanted to be part of. The family and I are looking
forward to heading over, experiencing San Diego and getting stuck into the season." From Richard
