Jamie Farndale

James Martin Richard Farndale, a former pupil of the Edinburgh Academy, has played through the age grades and been on the winning side in a number of Cup finals at school level. He has scored eight tries in IRB Junior World Cup Championships (2012 and 2013), placing him third in the all-time player tries for that championship, behind Zac Guilford and Andrew Conway (each 10).

In 2008, he was a winner in the Brewin Dolphin Schools Cup at under-15 level and the following year, matched that with a winner's medal for the Academy's under-18 side. He captained Scotland 7s at the Youth Commonwealth Games in the Isle of Man in 2011 and was top try scorer at the IRB Junior World Cup in 2012, with Scotland under-20, also representing the side at the event in 2013 and 2014. He has played a total of 31 matches at age grade for Scotland (under-18 and under-20) and has scored 110 points. His most recent try - already rated as a try of the tournament - came against South Africa in the 2014 IRB JWC opener.

He represented Edinburgh at under-16 level in 2009 and 2010, and is currently an Elite Development Player with Edinburgh Rugby, for whom he has one cap, off the bench. In addition, he is studying business management at Edinburgh's Napier University.

Aside from rugby, he has represented Scotland against England, Ireland and Wales in pentathlon. A former head boy at Edinburgh Academy, he also played bagpipes for the school pipe band and was a member of the school's choir which won BBC School Choir of the Year in 2011.
