Richard Buckman for Highlanders

Given contract: Richard Buckman

The Highlanders have rewarded wing Richard Buckman after his impressive debut performance against the Blues with a place in their full-time squad.

According to Newstalk ZB, the Hawke's Bay back comes into the group for Buxton Popoali'i, who is to miss the 2014 campaign due to heart surgery.

Jamie Joseph handed Buckman a start against the Blues last Saturday and the wing impressed, particularly with his decision making in defence.
