San Diego Legion signed Cameron Clark for the 2021 Major League Rugby season. The 27-year-old wing, fullback, center (28 in March) is 6’1″ and 195 lbs.
Cam was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and began playing rugby at age 8 or 9. He attended Knox Grammar School from 2004-2011 and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Swinburne University of Technolgy.
Cam played youth rugby for Wahroonga Tigers and was a volunteer lifeguard for Surf Saving Australia between 2009 and 2012.
Cam played for the Australia Sevens Team from 2012-2016, playing in 30 World Series Sevens tournaments, represented Australia at the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens, and earned a bronze medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, and played for Team Australia in the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
He played rugby XVs for Northern Suburbs in the Shute Shield in 2012/2013 and from 2016-2020. He played in the National Rugby Championship with the Sydney Rays in 2016/2017 and again in 2019/2020. From 2016-2020, Cam played Super Rugby with the NSW Waratahs and a match in the 2020 Super Rugby Australia.
Cam brings versatility to San Diego Legion, having played multiple back positions, and his rugby sevens experience should make him an elusive runner.
