Fullback Robin Williams played for Cardiff between 1969 and 1972. In 1967 – 68 while at Abersychan School, he gained Wales Secondary School Caps and later he appeared twice for Wales "B". When He represented Monmouthshire beat the touring Springboks side 14-8 at Ebbw Vale Williams was at Full Back. After two seasons at the Arms Park during which he had played 22 games he moved to Newport and held the record for the longest kick at Rodney Parade, in a game against Bridgend. Arguably 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.
