Liam Williams confirms next club after deciding to leave Scarlets

Cardiff Rugby have completed the signing of Liam Williams ahead of the 2022-23 season.

The Wales and British & Irish Lions full-back is the Blue and Blacks’ third signing in preparation for next season and follows in the footsteps of Thomas Young and Taulupe Faletau.

Williams replaces fellow Wales international Hallam Amos, who retires in the summer, and Cardiff director of rugby Dai Young is delighted to continue strengthening his squad with first class talent.

Young said: “We are all really excited to have signed Liam and look forward to welcoming him to Cardiff next season.

“We knew we had an opening at full-back and Liam’s talent and consistency is abundant for all to see. He has been one of the best full-backs in the world for a number of years and brings real quality on both sides of the ball with his attacking ability, kicking game, positioning and bravery. 

“He adds further strength and experience to our squad and will not only strengthen us on the pitch but will be a key role model and leader for some of the young talent coming through in the back three.

“It is important that we have strength and depth across the board and we will continue to add quality to our squad when available.”

Before securing a professional contract, the future England superstar served an apprenticeship under his Granddad as a painter and decorator. The 24-year-old, who likes keeping busy, hasn’t ruled out a return to the trade when his rugby days are done.
