“I’ve Loved My First Season” – Cameron Anderson Signs Contract Extension with Harlequins

Harlequins have confirmed that utility back Cameron Anderson has extended his contract, following a successful first season at the Twickenham Stoop. The versatile back-three man is equally adapted to wing or fullback, and arrived at Quins from their local Championship club London Scottish.

Since arriving from the Exiles in June 2023, Anderson racked up three appearences for Harlequins in the Gallagher Premiership, including the 32-26 win over Gloucester Rugby at Big Game 15. The 24-year-old also featured against Cardiff Rugby in the Investec Champions Cup, starting on the left wing in the 15-54 victory in the Welsh capital.

Upon announcing his new contract, Anderson said: “I’ve loved my first season at the Club. It’s been a rewarding experience, and I’ve enjoyed learning from some of the best in the business and developing my game alongside some world-class players. I’m excited for another season at Quins, we have a great group of lads, and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve.”

Director of Rugby Billy Millard commented: “Cam’s contribution this season has been excellent. He has been called upon at different times, performed well and is continuing to grow. We’re delighted that’s he’s staying at Quins and look forward to further improvement next season.”

Anderson began his senior career with Wasps Academy in 2018, before spending time on loan with Loughborough Students. He has achieved international recognition, as he represented Scotland U20 in 2019 and was selected for the U20 Six Nations and World Rugby U20 Championship. He was elevated to the Wasps senior squad in 2021, before joining London Scottish in 2022.
