Scott Williams (born 10 October 1990) is a Wales international rugby union player who currently plays at Centre for the Scarlets.[1]

Born in Carmarthen, Williams attended Coleg Sir Gar,[2] and is a fluent Welsh speaker.[3]

Club career[edit]

He played for Whitland RFC before joining Llanelli RFC. In 2009, Williams joined the Scarlets.

International career[edit]

He has represented Wales U16,U18 and U20.

It was announced on 9 May 2011 that Williams, along with 8 other Scarlets players, was in the Wales senior team against the Barbarians on 4 June 2011.[4] He made his full international debut as a second-half replacement.

Williams was then named in Wales' provisional 45 man provisional World Cup squad, completing training camps in Spala, Poland. After impressive performances off the bench against England at Twickenham and the Millennium Stadium, Williams was chosen as one of four centres in the final 30 man squad for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. Williams' performances once again impressed with the Scarlets centre scoring four tries - in the process Wales finished 4th.

Replaced the injured Jamie Roberts at half-time at Twickenham 25 February 2012 in Wales' third Six Nations victory against England. Scored solo try from the half-way line, having ripped the ball from England forward Courtney Lawes. This try proved pivotal in Wales' victory and them winning the Grand Slam.[5]
