One of the most dangerous attacking weapons at Scotland’s disposal, Jamie Farndale has been a model of consistency over the course of several sevens campaigns.
Having made his debut for Scotland 7s at the London leg of the 2014/15 series, Farndale burst onto the scene in his first full season with the squad. He finished the 2015/16 campaign with 27 tries and was instrumental in helping his side to a first-ever Cup victory at Twickenham in 2016.
Twelve months later, the 24-times capped U20 star was part of the squad that sensationally defended their London title by beating the hosts 12-7 in the final. Along the way, Farndale’s brace helped his side become the first Scottish representative side to beat New Zealand as they came from 21-0 down to beat the men in black 24-21 in the Cup quarter-final.
Farndale was selected for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and was named in the squad for the 2018 Sevens World Cup in San Francisco. A very memorable season also featured him being named as co-captain of Scotland 7s.
A stellar school career at Edinburgh Academy reaped Scottish Schools Cup wins at both U15 and U18 level, before a development contract with Edinburgh sprouted a professional career.
Jamie is also an accomplished piper, having played in his school’s pipe band.
