Jamie Blamire signed his first senior academy deal with the Falcons in the summer of 2016. The Cumbrian hooker is a graduate of the club's AASE scheme at Gosforth Academy, who has been capped by England at Under-18s and 20s level. The Workington native has played club rugby for Tynedale along with his Falcons commitments, where he comes under the tutelage of Newcastle first-team hooker Scott Lawson. Capped by England Under-18s in 2016 during their tour to South Africa, he helped England Under-20s to a Grand Slam during 2017 and was part of the under-20s squad which reached the final of the Junior World Championship in Georgia that summer. Making his first team debut from the bench during the 2017-18 European Challenge Cup win in Bordeaux, Blamire appeared a further two times from the bench that year before helping the Falcons to the final of the 2018 World Club 10s in Mauritius.
