Leaving for the touch world cup Niall Williams is looking to beat her boxing All Black brother to the championship punch.
Although teaching Sonny Bill a lesson is nothing new for the 23-year-old.
“I taught him a couple of flick passes that I've seen him use on the field, nah, he's got me out their practicing passes all the time,” she says.
Niall moved south to Christchurch to flat with the Crusader, and with while there are no worries about living in his shadow, living with his mess is another story.
“He's proably the messiest person around, I walked into his room and it looked like a bomb had gone off,” she says.
Niall also cleans up with nine Touch Black caps, compared to Williams’ four All Black appearances, and that's not her only bragging point, having won gold at the Youth World Cup in 2005.
“Me and my brother have a bit of banter, he's like ‘awwww touch’ and I'm like ‘but I've won a world cup already’,” she says.
The focus now though is beating Australia. New Zealand’s five team contingent are expected to clash with the arch rivals in the cup finals.
