LIKE HER MORE well-known sibling, Niall Williams is a dual-code rugby player.

The former Kiwi touch rugby representative has been making waves on the Sevens scene since switching codes last December.

And like Sonny Bill, Niall is a magnificent athlete with the deftest of touches as she proved against Fiji on day one of the Canada Sevens when she showed great situational awareness to execute a brilliant little flick pass to team-mate Shiray Tane and set up a try.
