Liam Williams linked with shock Cardiff switch

Posted by

Scarlets and Wales full-back Liam Williams is in talks over a move to Cardiff next season, possibly joining international team-mates Thomas Young and Taulupe Faletau at the Arms Park, according to Mark Orders at WalesOnline.

The 30-year-old is currently in his second spell at Parc y Scarlets where he made his debut in 2011 having been picked up by Llanelli RFC from his local club Waunarlwydd RFC. He has 29 tries in 111 appearances for the club, having scored an incredible 21 tries in 31 games for Saracens, winning a Pro12, two Premiership and a Heineken Champions Cup title.

Williams also has 16 tries in 72 caps for Wales in June 2012, as well as winning five British & Irish Lions test caps across the 2017 and 2021 tours to New Zealand and South Africa, respectively, memorably beginning the move that finished with the famous Sean O’Brien try against the All Blacks.

As he is part of the national 38, Cardiff would receive payments worth 80% of his wages were he to sign at the Arms Park, competing with Matthew Morgan and Jacob Beetham for the 15 jersey as Hallam Amos retires from the game.
