Jamie George is an English rugby union player. He plays at hooker for Saracens in the Gallagher Premiership. He has also represented the England Rugby Teamat under-16, under-18 and under-20 level. George played for local team Hertford Rugby Football Club in his youth, until he was asked to join the Saracens Academy. He was educated at Haileybury & Imperial Service College.
On 29 May 2015 George was promoted to England’s extended 50-man training squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. George replaced 66-test veteran Dylan Hartley in the squad after Hartley was suspended for head-butting George in a Saracens vs Northampton Saints fixture.
George was announced in Stuart Lancaster’s 31-man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup just 5 days after making his international debut against France during the World Cup Warm Ups, replacing Tom Youngs in the 48th minute. In January 2016, George was announced in Eddie Jones’ first senior England squad for the 2016 Six Nations Championship and made his Six Nations debut against Scotland, replacing captain Dylan Hartley in their 15–9 victory on 6 February 2016.
In 2017, he was selected as a member of the 41-man British and Irish Lions 2017 squad. George played six matches on the tour including all four tests, one against the Maori All Blacks and three against the All Blacks. The 32-10 win against the Maori All Blacks was his first international start having played all 17 of his England tests coming off the bench, a world record for most tests without a start. George played the full 80 minutes in the second test against New Zealand, setting up Conor Murray’s winning try.
