The Exeter born prop came through the youth ranks at Bath RFC and earned 49 caps in the process. The Welsh Union were alerted to Jarvis’ Welsh eligibility, for whom he qualifies through his Welsh grandmother, and facilitated a move to the Ospreys for Jarvis to increase his international chances.
Jarvis joined the Ospreys the beginning of the 2011-2012 season and made his Welsh debut a year later in November 2012 against Argentina.
To date, Jarvis has earned himself 17 international caps. The tighthead was included in Gatland's 31 man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
After four seasons at Ospreys, Jarvis announced his move to French club Clermont for the 2016/2017 season.
He lifted the Top 14 in his first campaign in France and just missed out on the Champions Cup winners medal in the 2016/17, as the French outfit were defeated by Saracens in the Murrayfield final.
In April 2018, it was announced Jarvis would return to Wales to join Dragons on a two-year contract.
