Paul Williams was an exciting fullback whose straight running and solid defence earned him a regular starting spot in the Blues XV in 2009.

With Rene Ranger, Joe Rokocoko, Isaia Toeava and Rudi Wulf occupying the wing/fullback duties in 2010, Williams saw little game time for the Blues but did impress in his regular cameos off the bench.

Williams was Canterbury’s vice-captain in their 2008 Air New Zealand Cup success before returning to Auckland where he was named the 2009 Auckland Player of the Year. He signed a contract with English Aviva Premiership team Sale Sharks at the end of the 2010 Blues season.
