Waratahs have confirmed that Cameron Clark has penned a new deal that will keep him associated with the Super Rugby club at least until the end of the upcoming 2020 season.

Clark started his professional rugby debut with National Rugby Championship side Sydney Rays with his Super Rugby debut for Waratahs coming in 2017.

The 26-year-old also featured for Australia Sevens between 2012 and 2016 and was part of the squad that competed in the 2013 Sevens World Cup, 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Rio Olympics in 2016.

“I’ve been involved in rugby in NSW since I was a junior and to represent the Waratahs has been a massive thrill for me,” he told the official website of the club.

“When the decision came to continue on it was a no-brainer, it’s an exciting time here at the Waratahs and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.

“I’m feeling fresh and ready to go, we’ve got a great group of guys here who will be keen to get stuck in during pre-season.”

Waratahs head coach Rob Penney expressed delight on Clark extending his stay at the club.

“Cameron is part of a group of young, talented, home-grown outside backs here at the Waratahs and I’m glad he’ll be with us in 2020,” Penney said.

“To represent your country at a Commonwealth or Olympic Games is a significant feat, to then go and make a successful transition from Sevens to the 15-man game is really impressive.

“I know Cameron has been in and around the fringes of the national squad and 2020 represents a big opportunity for him to build on his recent involvement in training squads and camps".
