Jamie Cripps (born 23 April 1992) is an Australian rules footballer for the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League (AFL). Cripps is a cousin of late West Coast player Chris Mainwaring.[1]

Junior career[edit]

Originally from Northampton, Western Australia, Cripps played his junior football for Western Australian Football League team East Fremantle Football Club, making his senior debut in 2009, before playing another six games in 2010[2] and representing Western Australia at the 2010 AFL National Under 18 Championships.[3]

Cripps was recruited to AFL club St Kilda with the 24th selection in the 2010 AFL Draft. Shortly after being drafted, Cripps was admitted to hospital suffering from a diabetes-related illness. It was reported that St Kilda were unaware that Cripps was diabetic before they drafted him.[4]

AFL career[edit]

Cripps made his AFL debut as the substitute player in St Kilda's Round 6 match against Adelaide at AAMI Stadium. He performed well, scoring two goals with his first two kicks of the game.[5]

At the end of the 2012 season he was traded to the West Coast Eagles along with draft pick 46 in exchange for draft picks 41 and 44.
