The current Wales men's captain, Elliot Kear 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 and U19s, before eventually getting his Super League debut against Leeds Rhinos in 2009. Three years with Bradford Bulls followed before 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.
