Richard was the second signing to be announced ahead of the 2014-15 season.

Richard made his Wales debut against Argentina in June 2006 and was a stand out performer during the British and Irish Lions tour to Australia where he started in the final test after substitute appearances in the first two.

Born in Neath, Richard joined the Ospreys after representing several local clubs. After a powerful and dynamic debut season in Cherry and White when the club lifted the European Rugby Challenge Cup, Hibbard was named in the Wales squad for Rugby World Cup 2015. 

His dynamic and physical play has quickly made him a favourite with fans at Kingsholm and he was voted Player of the Season after a terrific 2016-17 campaign and earned a call-up to the Barbarians squad to face England and Ulster.
