    Damn! What a sad thing for Williams, especially considering he all most a shoe in for the RWC, he'll now likely lose his spot to either Isaac Ross or Tom Donnely.

    poor bloke. that will make it about 30 months of rehab and 3 preseasons for about 7 games by the time he gets back on the pitch next year. that is the opposite of good
     
  4. Really feel for the guy. What a hard road to travel to get back to where he was, then he simply got punted back to the start. So unfortunate, he's a class player

    It's good that we have quite a bit of depth in the locks with Donnely playing very well on the end of season tour and Chris Jack coming back. I feel bad for Ali Williams it must just be devastating.

    Yeah, I'd have chosen him, Jack and Thorn to take to the RWC, and maybe Ross as well.

    I feel really sorry for him. If stuff like this continues it could even result in an early retirement. I don't think Ali is the kind of guy to give up like that, however.

    Wow, that's a huge blow.
    How old is Williams now? Does he have much time left in his international career? It feels like he's been around for ages.
     
  9. I think he's 29 ? Still got a few years in the tank probably. Sucks for NZ though, he's a class athlete
