In his first six appearances for the England U18 team, including four off the bench, Cameron Redpath scored a remarkable six tries. He began with a touchdown on his debut in the 43-14 win over France at Aylesbury and his aggregate includes two in the 55-11 win over Canada in the International Series at Taffs Well last April.
Cameron’s initial starts were at centre against Scotland at Preston Grasshoppers and at full back in the Ireland match at Parc y Scarlets. The son of 60-times capped former Sale Sharks and Scotland scrum half Bryan Redpath, who captained his country 26 times, he was born in Narbonne, France and is in his fourth season with Sale Sharks Academy.
He is taking A-levels in business, PE and psychology at Sedbergh, having attended St Mary’s and Cheltenham College and King’s School, Macclesfield. Cameron took up the game when five at Cheltenham Tigers, was also with Lymm RFC and played for England U17. He said: “My understanding of the game can be attributed to my father because of his involvement and experiences and my mum Gill has also been supportive. Sonny Bill Williams was my rugby idol when I was younger. He supports Manchester United and even had a spell with the West Bromwich Albion Football Academy.
Cameron has eclectic music tastes, has enjoyed Blind Side most on the film front, while Prison Break is his favourite TV show. He regards himself as calm, competitive and easy going, likes Fifa on Xbox but confesses to “not being bothered about computer games”. Enjoying steak and chips, his top meal, is higher on his priority list.
