Born in Zimbabwe, Mike Williams came through at The Sharks in Durban, South Africa.

He was captain of The Sharks at age-group level and excelled for the University of Pretoria alongside a period with the Blue Bulls where he featured in the Currie Cup.

At the end of the Bulls’ season in 2013, Williams earned his first opportunity in the Premiership with Worcester Warriors before switching to Leicester Tigers where he made near-100 appearances at Welford Road. 

It was with the Tigers he earned an England call-up for a pre-season training squad in 2016 and would have been capped but for a broken arm. 

Since joining Bath, Williams has featured in both the second row and back row with his physical defence proving a great asset for the Blue, Black and Whites.
