Profile

Nathan Williams was born in Haverfordwest on the 5th October 1983 and educated at Milford Haven Comprehensive School and Llandovery (16-19) Sixth Form College. On leaving school he trained, as befits a man of his imposing size (6ft, 18stone), as a banksman-rigger in the heavy construction industry.

He began his rugby career at Llanelli in the Welsh Premiership in the 2002/2003 season, going on to represent the regional team, the Scarlets, in the first year of regional rugby in Wales 2003/2004. Nathan made six appearances for the Scarlets including a 5 minute appearance against the Dragons at Stradey Park.

Nathan played for the Welsh U16 (2001), U17 (2002), U18 (2003), U19 (2004) and U21 (2005) International teams and Welsh Clubs XV, playing in the IRB Junior World Championships in 2002.

His most abiding rugby memory is of playing for the Welsh U18 side in 2003 against Argentina in a World Cup match that Argentina won after extra-time by a penalty shoot-out. As Nathan said, a searing experience like this scars you for life.

Nathan also had a stint playing for Carmarthen Quins as well as further appearances in the Welsh Premiership for Llanellu before signing for Narbeth RFC. In 2006-7 he made 20 appearances for Narberth and won the players' player of the year award.

In 2007 he signed for English Championship side, Moseley, both as a professional rugby player and a Schools/Community rugby coach.

He was included in the Birmingham Post's Midlands Select XV after 27 appearances in the 2007/08 season and again in 2008/09, playing an essential part of the Twickenham Cup winning team.

Nathan signed for the Dragons at the beginning of the 2011/2012 season after 4 seasons at Moseley and has regularly been in the Dragons matchday squad over the first half of the season.
