Shane Williams does 50th Try

Shane-williams-50-triesShane Williams claims his 50th international try against Argentina has simply made him hungrier.

Wales’ wizard bagged a brace in the drubbing of the Pumas in Cardiff. They put him joint third place alongside former England wing Rory Underwood on Test rugby’s all-time tryscoring list. But Williams, who has struck 48 times for Wales and twice for the British Lions, insists there is more to come.

“It’s a great honour and I’m really pleased to score 50 tries,” said the 32-year-old.

“It will be great to tell the children and grandchildren when I hang the boots up but I am just as happy when I scored my first try for Wales.

“I don’t want to get carried away because I feel there is more tries in me. If I get picked to face Australia next weekend and score to become the greatest in the northern hemisphere, then I’ll be a happy man.”

Only Japan’s Daisuke Ohata with 69 tries and Australian legend David Campese stand in the way of Williams becoming the greatest finisher of all-time.
