Back at the Chiefs after great experience playing in Japan and with Samoa at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Tim's verstatility in the backline gives us exciting options for 2018

He represented Samoa in Sevens and at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, as well as a stint in Japan. Williams has also played sevens for New Zealand.
