Arthur Buckler (birth registered April–June 1882[1] — death registered January–March 1921 (aged 38–39)[2]) birth registered in Newport district, was a Welsh professional rugby league footballer of the 1900s and '10s, playing at representative level for Wales, and at club level for Salford, as a Prop, i.e. number 8 or 10, during the era of contested scrums,[3] his death was registered in Newport district.

International honours[edit]

Arthur Buckler won a cap for Wales while at Salford in 1908 against England.[4]

Note[edit]

A footballer named H. Buckler won a cap for Other Nationalities while at Salford in 1904 against England. In this era, the Other Nationalities team predominantly consisted of Welsh players, so it is possible that H. Buckler could be related to, or actually be, Arthur Buckler.
