Career Stats & Summary

Biography

Fiery Manly forward is remembered for the ugly clash with John Sattler in the 1970 grand final that left the Souths' captain with a smashed jaw. Bucknall lasted just 35 minutes of the match after recriminations from the Souths' pack. A capable forward, he later played for NSW in 1973.
