Get to know more about Keelan Giles ahead of the new season here:

If you weren't a rugby player, what would you be?

I’m quite big into fitness, so probably like a PT or something like that. It’s related to my qualifications in college, so probably that. I did Sport BTech, and then on the side of playing rugby, I’d done my personal training qualifications as well.

If you could play in any other position, what would it be and why?

It wouldn’t be the front row, I can tell you that. I’ll definitely be staying among the backs. Probably, a number 10, I think. Pull the strings.

What are your interests outside of rugby?

I’m quite a chill person, so I like my free time. I game quite a bit. I play Call of Duty and FIFA, most of the time. I choose either Liverpool or Swansea… I’m a Liverpool fan.

If you had to pick one meal to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably, burger and chips. Yeah, quite a big fan of a nice burger… probably have a burger after every game I play.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Probably, just having no regrets. Take the good with the bad… because it’s not always going to be highs, there are going to be lows with it as well. Take the lows as well as the highs.

What was your favourite moment of the last season?

Getting a run of games towards the back end of the season. I was out injured till Christmas time, then was lucky enough to get some opportunities towards the back end of the season. Probably them games and probably the Scarlets game in particular. Big win.

What are you looking forward to this season?

Obviously, having some success on the pitch with the boys. I think it’s fair to say we probably weren’t happy with where we were in the table last year. Finish the new season a lot higher than where we finished last season, play some good rugby, score some exciting tries, and hopefully entertain the supporters who come down to support us.
