Northampton Saints 2010–
Mercey was injured throughout the first part of the 2012/13 season but his comeback coincided with an injury to Brian Mujati and therefore Mercey started several games in a row, not scoring but turning in some good performances.
Mercey was first selected for England U19 duty a year ahead of many of his peers, which included four appearances in the 2005 IRB Under 19 World Championships as well as outings in the 2004–05 U19 Six Nations.
Mercey was again called up for England U19 duty in the 2006 World Championships, before once again taking a step up ahead of his peers to represent the Under 21 side at the 2006 IRB Under 21 World Championships featuring in winning sides against Fiji and Wales.
At a national level he moved on from age group rugby to represent England Saxons in the Six Nations 'A' tournament, making his debut against Italy 'A' in February 2007. His performance saw him soon in Saxons colours just two months later, as he appeared in every game in the Saxon's victorious 2007 Churchill Cup campaign.
