Roberts represented Wales at all levels between Under 16s and Under 19s, and once again for the Under 21s. He was part of the Under 21s team which won the Six Nations Grand Slam in 2005.

With players away at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, Roberts was called up to play for the Cardiff Blues, making his debut against the Ospreys. The Blues won 17–15 in the first Magners League match to have a video referee. In the next two matches against the Dragons and Glasgow Warriors, he scored three tries, one against the former and two against the latter. This form led to continual selection for the Blues and led to selection in the Welsh squad for the Six Nations.

He has since gone on to make more than 85 appearances for the Blues, helping them to become the first Welsh side to lift silverware in Europe when they won the Amlin Challenge Cup with a final win over Toulon in Marseille in 2010.

Jamie Roberts recently qualified as a doctor from Cardiff University after eight years of studying at university.
