The Highlanders have paid a musical tribute to fallen teammate Richard Buckman after the wing suffered a serious shoulder injury last night.

The Super Rugby champions lost 45-38 against Dan Carter's Racing Metro in Hong Kong, with Buckman hurt while crossing in the corner at the end of the opening half.

The wing was taken to a local hospital and Highlanders lock Joe Wheeler led an emotional tribute the team titled 'The Barracuda".
