Ealing Trailfinders make twin signing for 2014-15

Ealing Trailfinders have bolstered their pack with the double signing of the Jones twins – Carwyn and Llewelyn.

The Welsh pair move to W13 from the Scarlets and will bring a physical presence to the pack.

Second-row Carwyn is the slightly bigger of the pair, standing at 6’6” and weighing 18 stone 12 pounds. Llewelyn meanwhile is 6’5”, tips the scales at 18 stone, 1 and can play either second-row, number 8 or blindside flank.

Both of the Haverfordwest-born players have been involved in the Wales U20 set up and Carwyn played in the Wales team that lost to England in the 2013 IRB U20 World Championship final.

Last season Carwyn was part of the Scarlets squad and played for Carmarthen Quins in the Principality Premiership, while Llewelyn was a member of the academy and ran out for Llandovery.

“Carwyn and Llewelyn are both big and very physical lads,” Director of Coaching Ben Ward said. “They are good lineout operators and have the ability run this area.

“Llewelyn is also able to play at 6 and 8. They will provide more competition to the squad and have been playing for two of the teams who finished in the top four in the Principality Premiership in Wales. They have great ambitions in the game and I’m looking forward to seeing them in an Ealing Trailfinders shirt this season.”
