Biography

Bert Jones by Alex Service

In what was a bleak time for the Knowsley Road club, with stars being sold to other clubs to try and offset mounting debts, the St.Helens Newspaper announced the surprise signing of Welsh international Rugby Union star Bert Jones from Neath. Described as “Wales best scrum-half,” Jones had played twice for his country against Ireland and Scotland during the 1933-34 Home Nations competition and was 22 years of age. He was quite well-built for a scrum-half, being 11stone 4 lbs and 5 feet 8ins. Bert was no slouch behind the scrum base either.

Unfortunately, Jones played just 14 matches for the club, his last against Wakefield on 1st December 1934. It is not known why his stay at the club was relatively short and we would welcome any further information about the player.
