Jamie Roberts graduates from Cambridge University as his talents know no end

Jamie Roberts has packed a hell of a lot into his 34 years.

There have been the 94 caps for Wales, the three Lions Tests over two tours and spells at Cardiff, Racing Metro, Harlequins, Bath, the Stormers and the Dragons.

Then there have been the academic achievements.

He graduated in medicine from Cardiff University in the summer 2013, going on to add a first class honours intercalated degree in Sport and Exercise Science.

Then came a stint at Queens College, Cambridge University, where he embarked on a Masters of Philosophy in Medical Science, while also playing in the 2015 Varsity match against Oxford at Twickenham.

He undertook that MPhil on a two-year, part-time basis, continuing his studies after moving on from Cambridge.

Centre Roberts actually graduated in 2017, but returned this week to mark the achievement in person.

He attended a graduation ceremony at Senate House, while there was a celebratory lunch with his family at Queens’ College.

There was also, of course, the obligatory graduation picture, which he has posted on social media.

But it was a picture with a difference as he was accompanied by his seventh-month-old son, Tomos Rhys Roberts, who was kitted out in Cambridge University rugby colours.

It shows the two of them on the banks of the River Cam, with a punt going past in the background.

Captioning the picture, he wrote: “Graduation day with my Cambridge University mascot at Queens’ College.”

Not that Roberts is finished with academia, as he is currently studying for a Masters in business administration at Loughborough University.

And he’s still doing the business out on the rugby field.

He’s about to embark on a second season with the Dragons, having signed a one-year contract extension after an impressive debut campaign.

Roberts has also become one of the best TV pundits around over recent years, bringing a unique insight and intelligence to match coverage.

And, just for good measure, he’s also played guitar on stage with the Manic Street Preachers!

It’s certainly been some life and he doesn’t turn 35 until November!
