Richard played professionally for Sale Sharks from 1999 to 2003 after graduating from Newcastle University. During his time at Sale Sharks he started working as a consultant for Brabners Chaffe Street law firm (formerly James Champman & Co.) whose clients included Manchester United and several leading Premiership rugby union clubs. He joined SFX in 2005 and went to Wasserman Media Group as a Director when they acquired SFX globally.
In 2008 he left WMG and established Green Room Sports Management. Richard has over fifteen years worth of experience working as an agent in the UK rugby market and the unrivalled relationships at Club and Union level you would expect from someone who has represented some 25+ full Internationals to date.
Married with three young daughters, who rightly dominate any spare time he gets, he is a keen golfer and skier.
