Williams was born and raised in the coastal town of Whitianga in New Zealand’s North Island, but qualifies for Scotland through his Edinburgh-born mum.

He attended St Paul’s Collegiate School in Hamilton for his final year, and then studied for two Bachelor degrees – one in Physical Education, Exercise and Sports Science, and one in Science (nutrition) – at Otago University.

During that time he played over 100 games for the university’s rugby club, helping them to three Otago Metropolitan Premier Club Rugby titles, and gaining recognition with New Zealand Universities.
