Weight 79kg / 12st 6lbs
Robin Williams, Fullback, played for Cardiff 1969/70 - 1971/72. He was one of the greatest goal kickers in Welsh rugby history - not just because of the points he scored, but also in his feat of landing goals with both his left and right foot from the halfway line. 
In 1967/68, from Abersychan School, he gained Wales Secondary School Caps. He appeared twice for Wales "B" in 70/71 and 71/72. He represented Monmouthshire at Ebbw Vale beating a touring Springboks side 14-8. In 1972/73 he transferred from Cardiff to Newport and held the record for the longest kick on Rodney Parade in a game against Bridgend.
