Following a great ball carrying performance against Connacht, Keiran Williams is making the most of his opportunity in the starting XV.
Previously referred to as a “little cannonball”, the centre’s dynamic style of play saw him receive plaudits from Head Coach, Toby Booth.
Commenting on his performance, Booth said: “Keiran was excellent (on the weekend), it reminded me of my first season here. He’s been in and out of the team with injuries so hopefully he can get a good run of games.
“He’s a dynamic player who can influence the game and we want people like that in our starting line-up.”
Booth has developed a strong track record of developing homegrown talent at the Ospreys and Williams is a fine example of this.
Neath born and bred; Williams enjoyed a quality spell at the Gnoll before moving to the Ospreys. A particular highlight of his time there involving an underdog win against Bargoed under Friday night lights.
Despite recent praise from Toby Booth, Williams still sees areas where he can improve his game: “At the moment, I definitely feel I need to become more of an all-round player."
