Jamie Ben Houston (born 5 August 1982)[1] is a retired German international rugby union player, having played for the SC 1880 Frankfurt in the Rugby-Bundesliga and the German national rugby union team. He most recently was coach of RG Heidelberg in the Rugby-Bundesliga.

He made his debut for Germany in a friendly versus Hong Kong on 12 December 2009.[1] Houston, born in England, qualifies to play for Germany after having spent three years playing in the country for the SC 1880 Frankfurt.[2]

Houston played in the 2009 German championship final for SC 1880 Frankfurt, which the club won.

After a neck injury, Houston had to retire from the sport in 2010, pursuing his career as a fitness instructor instead, but remaining in Germany.[3]

After a season as coach of the reserve team of SC 1880 Frankfurt, he took over as head coach of RG Heidelberg for Rudolf Finsterer for the 2011–12 season.[4] At the end of his first season with RGH he was replaced with the club's youth coach Bernd Schöpfel.[5]
