Statement from Trailfinders:-
Ealing Trailfinders can today confirm that Craig Willis will join Cornish Pirates for the 2019/20 season.

The fly-half has made 20 appearances for the West Londoners so far in the 18/19 campaign but will swap London for Penzance in the summer.
Willis joined the Trailfinders from Newcastle Falcons and has enjoyed plenty of competition with Laurence May for the starting shirt at Trailfinders Sports Club.
Director of Rugby Ben Ward thanks Willis for his contribution in the Green and White shirt.
“We are disappointed to lose Craig and he is someone that we wanted to remain with us. He has grown in to this season, getting better and better throughout the year.

Sounds like they didn't want him to leave. Looks like a very good signing. Welcome aboard!
He is very hard working and a good character amongst the squad. Although we regret that he will be moving on we wish him all the best and he is going to be a great asset for his new club.”

Craig came through Falcons academy and most supporters were sorry to see him go to Ealing last season and felt he would have been our starting 10 in the next season or two but he wasn’t getting much game time behind Toby Flood and Joel Hodgson , you are definitely getting a good one there.

Thanks for that - looking forward to welcoming Craig to Kernow.

This is exciting, very exciting. Just need some huge, ball carrying Fijian back rowers and 2 or 3, 6ft 10 second rows and we are in business...plus a prop or two. I am guessing Craig must have assurances regarding our squad, or perhaps he likes surfing and cream teas?

Yep we always liked Craig. Watch the highlights from our away win at Bath a few seasons ago.

We might be seeing him and your team next season.

Craig Willis was MoM for Ealing against Jersey and looking on the Newcastle Falcons forum they were sorry to see him leave the club for Ealing.
