Liam Williams isn’t one for the camera.
Saracens and Wales winger Liam Williams recently sat down with the Daily Mail in a wide-ranging interview. He discusses how the Ospreys told him he would never make it as a professional rugby player, and why he doesn’t do too much tv work.
Williams says he has a stammer that makes it very difficult for him to do so.
‘I don’t do any TV work,’ he said
’I don’t like it. I have this stammer and once I feel under pressure I just can’t get my words out. I couldn’t do that live on TV. I’d just end up swearing. When I feel under pressure it starts to get a bit worse. I’ve always had it — my older brother had it — and it sort of goes through phases of good and bad. It’s fine when I’ve had a beer or two!
‘When I’m on the pitch it goes. It just comes out. If I shout, it’s fine.
‘I’ve been meaning to sort it out but it’s just finding the time. It would enhance my profile but I just want to play rugby so I don’t really care, although I would like… a new Range Rover!’
Just keep letting your rugby do the talking and you’ll have no issue Liam!
