Sounds like he's been an unwilling victim of cutbacks resulting from Covid 19. & only 29 too

Can remember he played for Irish but was he good?

He was a young talent who played a fair bit for us. Always thought he had a lot of potential but gave away too many penalties for my liking and was never the most aggressive ball carrier. Very good workrate though and good in the line-out. The press release sounds like he might be leaving Rugby behind though.

He sounds like he might be leaving rugby, but that could be more to do with the lack of options. Iíd imagine nearly all prem clubs are looking to move players on, making signing for someone new nearly impossible. Terrible way to end career if thatís what happens.

From memory Jamie was studying for a degree at Oxford when he played for us, and I suspect has got some good career options open to him.

High work rate, great line-out operator, but a wee bit too light-weight with ball-in-hand.

Best charger down of box-kicks that we've ever had...

You're right Shawshank, Jamie was doing a Masters in the Classics, not sure if he completed it while at Irish though.

Would love him back. With Tuisuie and OíBrien in the back row can afford to have a more lightweight option with his engine. We would get an academy discount on top with him if available. I used to see him as a future captain when with us.

On the contrary, many Saints fans are both surprised and disappointed........

Yes, I need to replace most with some, apologies. They seemed more than happier with the remainder of the back row plus Isiekwe
