Tomos Williams lighting up Rugby World Cup in Japan

A try, a dazzling offload and what’s been labelled the most athletic moment of the Rugby World Cup so far.

Pitch Rep’s Tomos Williams has made a big impact through Wales first two games of the World Cup in Japan, aiding his side in all but confirming top spot in their pool group.


Williams came off the bench in Wales' first game of the tournament against Georgia, scoring his side’s fifth try and assisting another in a comfortable 43-14 win.

But it was in Wales' most important pool game which saw Williams lauded by media and fans alike, providing a huge momentum swing in a pivotal moment against Australia.


With Wales up by four points with three minutes remaining, Australia were awarded a penalty which gave them a chance to put the ball deep into Wales territory and press for the win. The subsequent kick looked destined to put Australia firmly on attack, but for an incredible diving effort from Williams to keep the ball in play:

The remarkable piece of skill played no small part in helping Wales cling on to a 29-25 victory and place themselves as firm favourites to top Pool D. There’s been plenty of admirers online of Williams' performances to date.


Wales next face Fiji on Wednesday.
