Along with rugby people all over Wales and beyond, we at Ebbw Vale RFC was deeply saddened to hear the news last weekend of the tragic and untimely death of Welsh rugby international, Elli Norkett. Many older Ebbw Vale supporters will recall that Elli’s father, Kim, played at scrum half for us in the mid 1980s, as well as representing Breconshire on many occasions.

Elli’s death represents a sad loss for everyone who knew, loved and admired this talented young woman, described by her friend and team-mate, Shona Powell-Hughes, as, “A unique and irreplaceable character that could light up any room she walked into with just her smile – a smile which made you smile”.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Elli’s family.
