Player Biog

With his booming boot and an ability to slot seemlessly into a number of backline positions, James has proved himself to be a vital asset to the Saints since his very first season with the club.

With Ben Foden ruled out for 10-weeks early in James’ first season at the club, the Kiwi was a fine deputy in the 15 shirt, scoring twice against Wasps before moving out wide to occupy a wing berth.

James arrived at Franklin's Gardens after a year spent with French outfit Bourgoin.

Predominantly an inside centre during those 12 months, James has also played fly half and full back in his time both at the Stade Pierre Rajon and at former club, Southland.

He became an Invercargill hero when his drop goal won Southland the Ranfurly Shield with a victory over Canterbury in 2011, capping an eight-year stay at the province for Wilson.

The tail end of the 2012/13 season saw James forge an outstanding centre partnership with Luther Burrell as the Saints reached the Aviva Premiership final and having been a regular during 2013/14’s double winning campaign, the classy back started the new season with a string of excellent performances back in the 15 shirt.
