Scotland under-18 captain Jamie was contracted to Edinburgh straight from school into the club’s senior squad, such was the promise exhibited by the Strathallan School pupil and Howe of Fife player.

Jamie made his senior team debut, off the bench to replace fellow Scotland under-20 player Magnus Bradbury, in Dublin against Leinster in the Guinness PRO12 match on Halloween 2014.

Jamie has represented the Caledonia region and Scotland at under-16 and U18, taking in two FIRA-AER European Championships (2013 and 2014), before being selected for this summer’s U20 squad for the Junior World Championships (JWC) in New Zealand, still aged 17. For the 2015 U20 6 Nations, Jamie was named Captain and the team went on to win all three of their home games.

Outwith rugby, the talented sportsman was also a Silver medallist at the British Judo Championships in 2009, was British Independent Schools Judo Champion in 2010 and played 1st XV cricket at his school.
