Williams, who signed off his professional rugby career in style on 27 May 2012 with a late try to steal the Pro12 title from European champions Leinster is rated as one of the best wingers that the world of rugby has ever seen. He featuredin three World Cups for Wales, in 2003, 2007 and 2011. He made his debut for the national side against France at Millennium Stadium, on February 5, 2000, and played his last international match a decade later against Australia, at the Millennium Stadium, on December 3, 2011 where he also scored the final try of the match!

During his career he was named IRB international player in 2008 beating notables such as New Zealand star Dan Carter to the accolade and is the 3rd highest international rugby test try scorer of all time.

Following on from last year’s speaker (another recent retiree), Harry Ellis who was a last minute replacement for former England Captain Phil Vickery, The Cayman Union is excited to host such a notable from the modern Rugby era!
