Despite being just 25, it's hard to remember a time when Jamie wasn't in the Cardiff or Blues side. Jamie was part of the class of '99, along with Ryan Powell, Rhys Williams, {returning} Gary Powell, Craig Morgan and just before brother Nicky.

When Dai Young took over in 2000, big name players left the Capital, such as Neil Jenkins, Rob Howley, John Humphreys, Craig Quinnell and Mike Rayer. This began the 4 year plan put in place by the former prop. It aimed to put a stop to the spending, and develop talent within, when the big names left, the clas of 99 were given their chance to shine.

Since then, Jamie has had highs and lows with Cardiff, in 03/04 season, he was Cardiff and the Celtic leagues top try scorer, however, he was not given the chance to show off on a bigger stage during his glorious year, and following a great season, was struck down pre-season with a knee injur that later required 2 surgical opperations.

His missed the entire 04/05 season, but made his comeback earlier this year starting against Edinbourgh.

He recently produced his finest form since returning, with a great display in the heroic victory at the Liberty Stadium over rivals, The Opsreys.

On a personal note, Jamie is without doubt my faveourite player, his pace, handling and vision are supurb, a real role model for youngsters and a great player for fans to watch.

His contract runs until the end of next season, 06/07, and im sure everyone looks forward to still seeing the best of one of Wales' most promicing centres.
