WRU Share Screenshots Of Horrific Messages Sent To Liam Williams Following France Defeat


The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has condemned the horrific social media abuse directed at Wales fullback Liam Williams following Saturday’s last-gasp defeat to France in the Six Nations.

Wales missed out on a Grand Slam after Les Blues ran in an 82 minute try with Williams yellow-carded late on leaving them down to 13-men for the final minutes with Taulupe Faletau also carded.

Williams has been one of Wales standout players in the championship this year but a number of disgruntled trolls decided to make him the villain after the final whistle with some truly disgusting comments.

The WRU tweeted an image with a sample of some of the messaged aimed at Williams with the following condemnation:

“The players are proud to represent their country and their jersey.

“The abuse players are receiving has to stop.

“This is a tiny example of the abuse just one player received last night.”

This latest sample of cowardice on social media proves once again that some form of online passport needs to be brought in. Enough is enough.
