London Broncos winger Rhys Williams made his 100th consecutive appearance for the club in the win over Batley at the weekend.

Williams, 28, has settled in the capital after having stints at Crusaders, Castleford, Salford and in Australia with Central Queensland Capras.

The Welshman came through the ranks at Warrington, scoring 21 tries in 29 appearances for them between 2010 and 2013.

He told the club’s official website: “It means an awful lot to me and it’s something that I am very proud of.

“Coming here I just wanted to play week in week out but to hit the 100 on the bounce is a huge achievement and it’s an amazing feeling to finally get there.

“Playing on the wing helps but I will be honest there were weeks when I probably shouldn’t have played when ill or slightly under 100% fit but you grit your teeth and get on with it.

“Obviously getting a bit older you become a lot stronger as a person. I have always been strong in the gym and that has helped.

“At the end of the day it’s my job and its one that I love doing.”

Williams scored two tries in the win over Batley to take his tally to 69 tries in 100 appearances for the Broncos.

As well as his club exploits, he earned 24 international caps for Wales.
