likely to make his sevens debut at the Wellington Sevens in New Zealand next
Wellington Sevens fixtures
Williams, who is earmarked to play in next year’s Olympics
in Rio de Janeiro, did not feature in New Zealand’s first two World Rugby
Sevens Series outings in Dubai and Cape Town but looks set to be drafted in for
the January 30-31 event in the New Zealand capital.
Williams will square off against South Africa in his debut sevens
tournament after the Blitzboks - champions this past weekend in Cape Town - were
drawn in the same group as New Zealand.
Scotland and Russia will join New Zealand and South Africa
in the same group, while Cape Town runners-up Argentina will compete against
series leaders Fiji, Wales and the only non-core side in Wellington, Japan.
Having finished third in Cape Town, France will play Mike
Friday's USA, England and Samoa.
Benjamin Ayimba's Kenya complete the top four seeds and
await Australia, Canada and Portugal.
