Athlete Biography

Cameron Clark made his Australian debut in 2012 in Wellington and has now played at 30 World Series competitions. Since his first match in the green and gold he has established himself as a reliable option in the squad’s backline and is often utilised as a goal kicker.

The Auckland-born back represented Australia in the national schoolboys side in 2011, along with Rio 2016 teammate Allan Fa'alava'au. The same year he was a member of the Australian Commonwealth Youth Games Team that won bronze in the Isle of Man.

In 2014, he won bronze at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games to cap off a remarkable 2013-14 Sevens World Series where Clark was named in the Men's Sevens Team of the Year. He passed the 500-point mark during the 2014-15 season and now has 632 World Series points to his name.

The son of rugby commentator Greg Clark, he first touched a rugby ball as an eight-year-old when he led the NSW Waratahs out at the Sydney Football Stadium in 2001 for a clash against the Queensland Reds.

Off the pitch Clark completed a Bachelor of Business from the Swinburne University of Technology.
