Jean-Pierre Jamieson (born (1995-02-15)15 February 1995 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa) is a South African rugby union player, currently playing with the Eastern Province Kings. His regular position is hooker.


Youth / Varsity Cup rugby

Jamieson didn't feature in any school provincial competitions for Eastern Province, but in 2013 – while still in the Under-18 age group, he was included in the Eastern Province U19 squad that participated in Group B of the 2013 Under-19 Provincial Championship. He started four of their seven matches during the regular season, scoring a try in a 42–20 victory over the Griffons U19 team to help his side finish in third position on the log to secure a semi-final spot. He started their 45–30 victory over Boland U19 in the semi-finals, as well as their 56–40 victory over the table-topping Falcons U19 side in the final to help them secure the Group B title. He also started in their 27–20 win over Eastern Cape rivals Border U19 in the promotion play-off match, as his side won 27–20 to win promotion to Group A for 2014.

He was a key member of the squad that played in the 2014 event, making nine starts and two appearances off the bench in their twelve matches during the campaign. He scored a try in their 42–7 victory over Leopards U19, as Eastern Province won four matches to finish in sixth spot, avoiding a relegation play-off match.

For 2015, Jamieson was included in the Eastern Province U21 squad for their season in the Group A of the 2015 Under-21 Provincial Championship, their first season at that level after winning promotion from Group B at the end of 2014. The team struggled to adjust at this level, winning just one of their twelve matches during the season to finish bottom of the log, but Jamieson once again established himself as a regular in the side, making ten starts and appearing as a replacement in their other two matches.

At the start of 2016, Jamieson was included in the NMMU Madibaz squad that participated in the 2016 Varsity Cup tournament. He made four appearances in a disappointing season for NMMU as they finish second-last in the competition.

Eastern Province Kings

At the end of 2015, serious financial problems at the Eastern Province Kings saw a number of first team regulars leave the union and Jamieson was among a number of youngsters that were promoted to the squad that competed in the 2016 Currie Cup qualification series. He was named on the bench for their first match of the season against the SWD Eagles and came on as a replacement in the 54th minutes of a 14–37 defeat to make his first class debut. He made four more appearances off the bench during the season – finding himself behind Warrick Venter and Southern Kings loanee Martin Bezuidenhout in the pecking order – but made his first senior start on 28 May 2016 in a 35–all draw against the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.
