Williams stars in Lions win in Hamilton


Future Saracen Liam Williams starred for the Britain & Irish Lions in their 34-6 win over The Chiefs in Hamilton, earlier this morning.

The former Scarlets star, who starred in New Zealand in the red of Wales in 2016, slotted in at full-back and reminded the kiwi public of his counter attacking prowess with a series of mazy runs that punished some loose Chiefs kicking.

Williams was on hand to produce a trademark elusive run for Jared Payne’s second half score.

In the match, Exeter Chiefs’ wing Jack Nowell crossed for a brace of tries earlier in the game adding to a penalty try awarded by Referee Jerome Garces.

Wednesday evening will see the Lions announce their squad to face the All Blacks in Auckland on Saturday.
