Tomos Williams’ insane momentum shifting piece of skill

Wales defeated Australia to go top of Pool D at the Rugby World Cup but what scrum-half Tomos Williams did during the latter stages of the game has got fans talking. 

Tomos Williams ‘act of skill’ changed momentum

With this one move, Tomos Williams help take away the mounting pressure on Wales and stunt Australia’s momentum.

Australia had just earned a penalty and kicked it towards touch when Tomos Williams’ acrobatic dive through the air prevented it from going dead, thus allowing Wales to send it back downfield.

In terms of sheer enthusiasm, Williams’ act was at the top end of the scale. Heroic, yet it was calculated and effective. During any of the 2019 Rugby World Cup pool games, securing top points and holding a winning momentum count for much.

Wales will benefit from the result, and be in a position of influence, when it comes to their quarterfinal placing. Warren Gatland will know this, as will his leadership group.

Fans will all know that their team are giving it all at this tournament, with Tomos Williams a fine example for children and all rugby players to follow. Instinct and good vision, can help your team’s momentum, on the biggest stage of them all.


Wales 29 – Tries: Hadleigh Parkes, Gareth Davies; Conversions: Dan Biggar, Rhys Patchell, Penalties: Patchell (3); Drop Goal (2) 

Australia 25 – Tries: Adam Ashley-Cooper, Dane Haylett-Petty, Michael Hooper; Pens: Bernard Foley, Matt Toomua; Cons: Toomua (2)
