Richard Horace Maconchie "Dick" Gibbs (4 February 1892 – 19 July 1915) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Melbourne University in the Victorian Football League.
He was educated at Caulfield Grammar School and at the University of Melbourne.
He enlisted during the First World War—at the time he was a third-year medical student at Melbourne University—and was killed in his first clash with the enemy. He was posthumously awarded the Military Cross for leading his troops over a parapet, despite heavy German gunfire.
