Very sad. Chester broke alot of ground in rugby and was a man who paved the way for many more on and off the field. Very sad to see the 2 wingers from 95 gone well before their time. May he rest in peace

Nope, only a couple of months ago.

Just more tragic news. Must be pretty tough to take in RSA.

Chester Williams and James Smalls were pretty good wingers during the days when they played. The 1995 RWC final was quite special.

RIP.
