Niall Williams

From a touch rugby background, Williams only picked up sevens in 2014 and quickly impressed, debuting for the Black Ferns Sevens only a year later. The mother of two has plenty of pace and strength and excels in defence which has helped her command a regular starting spot. A key member of the Black Ferns Sevens, Williams was one of four brother-sister combos in sevens at the 2016 Rio Olympics with her brother Sonny Bill suiting up for the All Blacks Sevens.
