A coal miner who also played for Abertillery and Cross Keys. Played for Newport RFC 1933-34 to 1937-38.
W. J. T. Collins in his book "Rugby Recollections" had this to say about him:-
"Albert Fear (Abertillery and Newport) came into prominence as a breakaway forward in 1934. In the match with Ireland at Swansea (a game which Wales won against the odds, for the Irish forwards had the best of the heeling for threequarters of the game), it was chiefly Fear's work which prevented the visiting halves and threequarters from turning their opportunities to scoring account. His play was a revelation of genius - the perfect working together of mind and body. Unerringly he found his way to the decisive point. When Ireland were heeling consistently his assaults upon their combination were devastating. When Wales were shaky he was continually helpful in covering work."
