Williams hopeful of place in Wales Rugby Team
Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club player Owen Williams has refused to divulge any detail about whether he had actually spoken to Warren Gatland, the coach of the Wales Rugby Team about his future with the national team after putting pen to paper on a new contract with the record Aviva Premiership champions.
Williams did admit that the adrenaline rush of walking out on to the field in front of 20,000 fans screaming their lungs out was too good a rush to throw away and it was the main reason for him signing a contract with the club.
But he mentioned that he remains hopeful of earning a recall to the Wales setup after turning down a contract offer from the Scarlets as well as the possibility of securing the controversial national dual contract with the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU).
Gatland is set to announce the Wales Rugby Team squad for the Six Nations Championship shortly and Williams, still uncapped, is pushing for a place in the side.
He has a lot of competition ahead of him but he is not one to back away from a battle to secure his position in the team. He said that he would love to play for Wales but he will have to wait and see.
He was asked if he had any regrets about his decision of staying with the twice European champions to whom he said that he is very pleased to have re-signed his contract with the Tigers and he is looking forward to spending a long time at Welford Road.
Owen Williams said that he made an informed decision and has no regrets whatsoever but he would also love the chance to represent the Wales Rugby Team in the future and hopes to be given that opportunity soon enough.
