Another local product joins the club for the coming season and will provide a further challenge to what is already a highly competitive area of the squad. Craig Fillier, a tough, uncompromising character – as befits a serving soldier – joins the club and, with the ability to play right across the back row, is an excellent acquisition. Craig had a brief spell with Bedwas last season but is best known for his exploits for Brynmawr RFC where he scored three tries in the Plate final at the Principality Stadium in 2018 in the highly successful team that also won Division 1 East, and has an impressive list of honours as follows:
Gwent Dragons – U16, U18s, U20s
Wales Rugby Union 18s and U20s
Wales Rugby League U19s
British Army Rugby Union (12 Caps) – Including Army Vs Navy at Twickenham and featured in the Forces World Cup.
Combined Services (2 Caps)
Plate Cup Final Winner with Brynmawr RFC – 2017/2018.
Craig said, “I am delighted to be joining such a historic, proud club as Ebbw Vale. As a local boy from Blaina, me and my dad held season tickets at the club and attended all the home games. So it’s a real privilege to be part of the team I have such fond memories of watching and admiring as a youngster. I’m looking forward to the season ahead and relish the opportunity to be a part of this great club.”
