The one thing I lament about Williams' move from Sydney to Adelaide a number of seasons ago is that I never seem to be able to get good shots of him since he's been at Adelaide, whereas he was one of my more "photogenic" players at Sydney. Oh well, such is life. The 2017-18 ABL season was Williams' eight in the league and his fifth with the Bite.

The move from Sydney to Canberra the previous season was obviously a positive for the Kandi-man as his seventh ABL season in 2017-18 - his second with Canberra - proved to be his most productive ABL season to date as he became a major offensive cog for Canberra.
