Before joining first class team Newport, Fear played for Abertillery where he worked as a coal miner. In 1931 the touring South African national team played a joint Abertillery / Cross Keys side of which Fear was selected. It was an extremely tight game, which the unfancied Welsh team gaining in strength as the match progressed, eventually the Springboks won through 10-9.
It took Fear another three years to gain recognition from the Welsh selectors, when on February 3, 1935 he was capped to face Scotland during the Home Nations Championship. Under the captaincy of Claude Davey Wales were victorious over a fairly inexperienced Scottish side, winning 13-6. Fear was re-selected for the next game of the tournament against Ireland at St Helens, and in a game dominated by Wales, Fear scored his first and only international points when he scored a try for his country. Fear returned for Wales the next year when he played in the same two fixtures against Scotland and Ireland in the 1935 Championship, though these were his last international caps.
