Scotland legend hopes son will pick Scots over England

Scotland legend Bryan Redpath is slowly coming to terms with the fact that his son Cameron might play for England.

‘He knows my feelings,” revealed Redpath senior with a chuckle to The Scotsman.

“I’d want him to play for Scotland. And he’s not tied to anything yet so never say never, as they say. But, in the end, it will be his choice to make, not mine.”

“Cameron was involved with Scotland at age-grade level but things ended up going down a different route, for the moment at least,” explained his father.

“He got a bad shoulder injury and Sale paid for the surgery to get him back in shape. The way things work down here is that clubs get funding from the RFU for having most of their squad English qualified and Cameron felt some debt and gratitude to them for their help.

“I think the move to Bath is a good one for him, it’s a fresh challenge and I’m sure he’ll seize it once rugby gets back up and running.”
