Former Wales player Shane Williams says the current squad is the best he has seen in his lifetime. Warren Gatland’s side are currently preparing for the World Cup, which starts on September 20. Williams is currently working as an ambassador for host cities Osaka and Kobe but he still has Wales’ hopes on his mind.

He spent three years in Japan towards the end of his career and believes Gatland’s men have a superb chance of going all the way. Williams told RTU: “A 14-game winning streak and a Grand Slam in the Six Nations in a World Cup year is brilliant. “Wales have got such strength in depth.
They have quality players and a great coach who is in his last couple of months with the side so they have got it all going for them at the moment. “I have been lucky enough to play in some great squads that have won Grand Slams and big games, but we probably didn’t have the strength in depth which Wales have at the moment. Without doubt, this is probably the strongest Welsh squad I have seen in my lifetime.”
