CARDIFF led tributes today to former Wales flanker Owain Williams, who has died at the age of 56.
Williams made more than 200 appearances for Cardiff before retiring in 2001, while he won a solitary Wales cap against Namibia 11 years earlier, scoring a try. He also captained the Wales sevens team.
“It is with great sadness that Cardiff Rugby have learnt of the passing of former flanker Owain Williams following a long battle with cancer,” the Welsh club said.
“Owain is fondly remembered at Cardiff Arms Park, and the thoughts and condolences of everyone at Cardiff Rugby are with his family and friends at this difficult time.”
Williams’s son Teddy is currently a member of Cardiff’s first-team squad.
Cardiff life president Peter Thomas added: “To this day, Owain is undoubtedly one of the best back-row forwards Cardiff has ever had. He was a wonderful player and person.
“He will be sadly missed by all of us, particularly at such a young age. He was a very special player and was respected by everyone he played with or against.”
