Munster Rugby announce new signing.
Munster Rugby today announced that Blues number 8 Nick Williams, will join the squad later in the year subject to the usual medical clearance and his obtaining a work permit.

Samoan born Williams (24) played in 12 of the Blues 13 Super 14 games this season, scoring tries against The Lions in Ellis Park and The Crusaders in Christchurch.

Williams is expected to arrive in November.

Great signing for Munster. He will easily fill the gap of Leamy while he is out injured. How long have Munster signed Williams for? Is it just for the season or a couple of years?

Well out of All Blacks contention now, maybe he should opt for playinf for manu samoa?

Yes Nick Williams is a awesome player with the ball in hand and is pretty decent in defence. However he lacks consistency to perform well every game, such as his workrate. Still a awesome player though!!!

So another player leaving the Blues :(

He's not that good anymore.

Had All Black potential in 2005/06 but than got fat and slow.

yeah he almost seemed to become a passenger in games this year and I remember getting subbed a good number of times too when he did start.

That's all we need :P Someone with average experience and good defense. Hopefully he will take in the Munster way, just like Howlett, and stay for longer but also increase his potential and reach it.
