Liam Williams has the Midas touch in 2019 — and his only goal now with Wales is to end a perfect year by lifting the World Cup.

The full-back, 28, has won everything in which he has competed in this calendar year, only being on the losing side three times in 20 games.

He is used to the biggest occasions, too, having won the Premiership and European Cup with Saracens and a Six Nations Grand Slam with his country.

But against France in the World Cup quarter-final in Oita on Sunday, Williams is out to complete the set.

‘There’s only one thing we think we can do and that is win it,’ he said when asked about Wales’s chances in Japan.

‘I wouldn’t say we’ve got the easy route, but we’ve got France next and we need to beat them.

‘We can go on and win it. Over the past 18 months we’ve won the Six Nations and been away on a couple of these camps and it has all brought us into one huge team.

‘That’s been great for Wales and hopefully it’s going to put us in really good stead.

‘We’ve beaten France seven out of the last eight times.
