Chester Williams - Celebrity Sports Star, Mc, Motivational
Speaker and - Cape Town
Chester is perhaps the most popular of all the
Springboks, winning fans on the field with his high
work rate and off the field through his work in
He has become an inspiration to rugby players in the
under-privileged areas of South Africa. Quiet and
modest by nature, Williams is an ideal role model.
Due to injury Williams missed the opening rounds of
the 1995 World Cup, only joining the team at the
quarterfinal stage. He immediately justified his
call up by scoring four tries against Western Samoa.
He went on to play a vital role in both the
semifinal and final.
Two career-threatening knee injuries in 1996 and
1997 meant he only played a handful of games over
the subsequent two seasons, but a move to the Lions
in 1999 rekindled the flair of earlier years.
Williams was one of the unsung heroes of the Cats
2000 Vodacom Super 12 campaign. His influence and
experience proved invaluable to those around him,
while he also scored his fair share of tries.
He was a key player in South Africa's campaign to
capture the 2001 Rugby Sevens World Cup in
Argentina. He may have lost a touch of pace, but his
reading of the game and ability to finish are as
lethal as ever.
He loves to go mountain climbing. He is another
English soccer fanatic, supporting Manchester
United. He also collects red wine.
A small man for a top rugby player, he was known for his plucky attitude and his excellent finishing. He was forced into retirement in June 2001 after severely damaging the cartilage in his left knee. The end of his playing career marked the beginning of his coaching career.
