Cameron's Canadian Call Up



One of SDC’s most promising rugby talents recently returned from playing with his new team mates-Canada’s Under 19 team.

Last term the 18-year-old received a call up to play in Canada’s rugby tour of Ireland.

The captain of Llandudno’s Youth Team jumped at the chance to play in the three-test series.

The Anglesey native is eligible to play through his great grandfather who had emigrated to Canada with his family in the 1900s.

Cameron, currently studying sports science, business studies and applied science, said even though Canada may not have won the series, he relished the opportunity to play international rugby and to meet his new team mates.

“My team mates who came from all over Canada, were very different to me, for one thing they were much louder,” said Cameron.

“Before any match they’d psyche themselves up by listening to hip-hop or death metal music and then the players would start yelling as if they were going to kill someone!

“But I got on really well with them, they accepted me into the team pretty quickly.”

Cameron also had to swiftly get used to the tough training regime. Up at 6am, training before breakfast, and having to deal with a fairly blunt coach.

“I’ve learnt a lot about my diet too, weight training and sprint training, “he said.

“I must have done alright as I’ve been invited to join the team again in Spring for another rugby test tour in Ireland.

“It’s going to be a tough one playing seven matches in two weeks against the likes of Munster and Ulster.”
