What a talent.
When you sit down and look back at some of the greatest player’s to have ever played the sport of rugby, Shane Williams is a man that will be mentioned in that conversation every time.
The Welsh flier was World Player of the Year in 2008 and deservedly so. Possessing lighting speed and dazzling feet, the former Lions and Wales winger was one of the greatest finishers the world of rugby has ever seen.
Williams is one of 12 players who were announced this week as the latest inductees into the World Rugby Hall of Fame and joins an impressive class this year alongside the likes of Johnny Wilkinson and Brian O’Driscoll.
2016 Hall of Fame inductees: Brian O’Driscoll (Ireland), Shane Williams (Wales), Jeremy Guscott (England), Lawrence Dallaglio (England), Heather Moyse (Canada), John Dawes (Wales), GPS Macpherson (Scotland), Arthur Gould (Wales), Jonny Wilkinson (England), Daniel Carroll (Australia and USA), Daisuke Ohata (Japan) and Maggie Alphonsi (England).
