Breaking: Liam Williams Quits Welsh Rugby
Welsh utility back Liam Williams has quit Welsh rugby and signed for European and English club champions Saracens.
The Scarlets star is reportedly after turning down a more lucrative financial offer from the WRU. Williams believed to have pencilled a two-year deal with the Aviva Premiership leaders and will join them for next season according to Wales Rugby Online
The 25-year-old full-back has been the talk of much speculation in recent months, with host of top clubs said to be after his signature, with his Scarlets contract up at the end of the season.
Scarlets were hopeful that National Dual Contract from the WRU would keep him at Parc y Scarlets despite intense competition from their Ospreys, several French clubs and Saracens.
Wales Rugby Online sources claim Williams would be heading for Saracens for a less lucrative pay deal than he could have secured in Wales but the lure of living in London, where his model girlfriend Sophie Harries is based, and the opportunity to win major trophies are understood to have been the determining factors in his decision.
