Ten years ago, New Zealander Paul Williams was playing 'Number Tin' for York RUFC.
Tomorrow, he takes the field at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane as one of the touch judges for the 1st Test of the Australia v Ireland Test Series.
Next Saturday, he'll run out onto the AAMI Park in Melbourne to referee the Second Test of the Australia v Ireland series, the biggest game of his career so far.
Brian McClure and Conor Smith-Lynch are sure to be watching along with all the other Ireland supporters - everyone connected with York RUFC should also watch the games and give Paul their support.
We wish him well - 'the lads done good'!!!
