Young Scottish centre, Cameron Redpath, has suffered a serious knee injury which could see him out of action until next year.
The 21 year-old ruptured his ACL while playing for his Premiership club, Bath, when they faced Sale recently – 14 May.
Redpath, the son of former Scotland international Bryan, wowed audiences earlier this year when he made his international debut in the Calcutta Cup against England – putting in a performance far beyond his years.
Bath issued the following statement:
“Bath Rugby can confirm Cameron Redpath has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.
“The centre sustained the injury in the Blue, Black and White’s Gallagher Premiership match against Sale Sharks on Friday 14th May.
“The rehab team will work with the 21-year-old after his surgery to allow him to be back to his best as soon as possible.
“Everyone at Bath Rugby with Cameron every step of the way and wish him a speedy recovery.”
