Rugby: Tom Williams makes Pro14 debut for Ospreys in Cheetahs win

A former Rugby Academy star at Rydal Penrhos achieved another significant milestone during what has been a standout young career to date.

Tom Williams, who left the school in 2014, made his Pro 14 Debut for Ospreys and started in their resounding 46-14 home success over Cheetahs last weekend.

Williams is another successful product of the Rydal Penrhos Rugby Academy, which is run in partnership with Principality Premiership side RGC and the Welsh Rugby Union.

The talented back recently received a contract extension from the region after deciding to focus more on his development as a club player following a hugely successful stint with the Welsh Rugby 7s side in recent years.

Two tries from Justin Tipuric and Alun Wyn Jones each guided the Ospreys to a second Pro14 win as the region outclassed Cheetahs in Swansea.

Following a narrow win over Edinburgh, the seven-try Ospreys stormed to a bonus point victory.

Other tries from Scott Otten, George North and Alex Jeffries sealed the win.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Tom has worked incredibly hard to make it to the level he is at right now, and he can be enormously proud of his achievements especially considering he is just working his way back into the squad after a very eventful World 7s Cup with Wales.

“Hopefully this will be the start of a very good season for Tom and he is one of many of our Rugby Academy graduates that continue to make a name for themselves at the very highest level.”
