The biggest compliment you could pay Jamie Elliott is that the young wing has no outstanding attribute – or weakness for that matter.
Yet as well as being excellent in all areas of a wide player’s game, the Academy product also has a nose for the try line that simply cannot be taught.
Born just down the road in Bedford, Jamie made his debut with the Saints in the LV= Cup back in 2011, just 18 at the time, and in the same year marked his first Premiership start by picking up a try in an important away win at Sale Sharks.
He made it back-to-back scores a week later against London Irish and carried his scoring form into England Under-20's Six Nations winning campaign, crossing the line in the opening win against Wales.
Since then Jamie has found himself regularly on the scoring sheet for the Saints and was awarded Young Player of the Season, as well as top try scorer in the 2012/13 season.
That included a run of 10 tries in 12 league matches and Jamie wouldn’t take long to make his mark in 2013/14, scoring the Saints and Premiership try of Season at Gloucester in stunning fashion.
Injury denied him a place in the Challenge Cup and Aviva Premiership finals but the wing’s contribution in helping his side reach those showpieces certainly wasn’t overlooked.
