Jamie Farndale

James Martin Richard Farndale was born in Winchester and schooled at the Edinburgh Academy.

A mainstay of the international U20 side from an early age, featuring in no fewer than three IRB Junior World Championships (2012, 2013 and 2014) and finishing his final tournament as joint, all-time top try-scorer (10).

In the 2011/12 season he capped an impressive season by finishing as top try scorer in the 2012 JWC in South Africa.

Sadly a leg break in October marred his attempts to add to his first senior competitive appearance in the last match of the 2011/12 season against Cardiff, however he returned in time for the 2013 World Championships in France, before going on to join the all-time leader board in 2014.

He represented Edinburgh at under-16 level in 2009 and 2010, and was included in the extended Scotland under-17 squad that travelled to Valladolid in Spain, in 2010.

Aside from rugby, he has represented Scotland against England, Ireland and Wales in pentathlon. He also played bagpipes for the school pipe band and sang in the choir.
