We asked Jamie for his thoughts on coming back to the University of Exeter:

"As an Alumnus of the University and previous scholar for Rugby, I am in a unique position where I can communicate, on a personal level, just how well the scholarship programme facilitates athletes and puts them in an 'as-close-to' professional environment for their sport. This gives aspiring athletes the best opportunity to work hard in their chosen sport and with the best facilities and coaches available. I am really looking forward to working with committed student athletes that are expecting the best university experience throughout their degree."
