Last Saturday’s Guinness PRO12 encounter in Belfast saw scrum-half Duncan Williams become the 9th player of the current squad to make 100 appearances for the province.

The first player to do so in the current season, Williams joins teammates Tomás O’Leary, Denis HurleyDonnacha Ryan, Billy HollandKeith EarlsTommy O'Donnell, Ian Keatley and BJ Botha in reaching the 100 cap milestone in the red jersey.
 
A native of Douglas, the Cork-man initially excelled in the Schools game where he represented Christian Brothers College, Cork on his way to winning international honours at Schools and U21 level.
 
As a graduate of the Munster Rugby Academy, the young half-back crossed for a try on his British & Irish Cup debut for Munster A against Coventry in November 2009 and made his senior debut against Connacht in Thomond Park the following December. 
 
At the beginning of the 2010/11 season the Cork Constitution clubman moved from a development to a full contract and soon after made his European debut from the bench against London Irish in October 2010.  A month later he started against Australia in Munster's historic 15-6 victory over the southern hemisphere giants.
 
To date the 29 year old has crossed for 5 senior competitive tries, the first of which came in his native Cork when Munster defeated Scarlets at the then Musgrave Park in September 2011.  Later that season, the Musgrave faithful also saw Williams touch down in Munster A's British & Irish Cup final win over Cross Keys in April 2012.
 
With Magners League (2011) and British & Irish Cup (2012) titles amongst his achievements so far, the scrum-half signed a two year contract extension in February of last year that will see him remain at the province until at least June 2017.


Duncan celebrates his first Munster try with Peter O'Mahony, Billy Holland and Lifiemi Mafi against Scarlets in Musgrave Park in September 2011.
