The current Wales men's captain, leading the side in the World Cup 9s in Australia in 2019, Elliot Kear has played in two World Cups for Wales, in 2013 and 2017, the Four Nations in 2011 and was part of the 2009, 2010 and 2015 European Championship winning side. Elliot attended Whitchurch High School in his hometown of Cardiff, and was in the same year as Sam Warburton and Gareth Bale. He started playing rugby league with Cardiff Demons U16s after initially playing rugby union in the Cardiff Blues development system where he wasn't kept on after being told he was too small. After being spotted by Celtic Crusaders head coach John Dixon, he started playing for their feeder and junior sides, plus Wales Dragonhearts, where he helped Wales to the Community Four Nations in 2008, and Wales U19s, before eventually getting his Super League debut against Leeds Rhinos in 2009. This after helping Crusaders Colts to the 2018 Conference National Grand Final win. He played 22 times for Celtic Crusaders, scoring five tries, running over the same amount for South Wales Scorpions in 2010 in their first season as he played 13 games there on loan. After the old Crusaders club folded, he spent three more years in Super League with Bradford Bulls, scoring 21 tries in 59 games, before spending a brief spell in rugby union's Premiership with London Welsh. Returning to RL with London Broncos, Elliot was a member of the side who beat Toronto Wolfpack in the Million Pound Game in 2018. After 35 tries in 127 games for the Broncos, he joined Salford Red Devils for the 2019 season and has played in Super League and Challenge Cup Finals for them.
