Williams takes Bath kicking role

Bath have appointed Welshman Rowly Williams as their new kicking coach.

Williams was previously with Wasps and Harlequins. He has also worked in Rugby League with Wigan Warriors.

“I’ll be doing some individual profiling then finding out what their needs and concerns are,” Williams told BBC Radio Bristol.

Head coach Steve Meehan added: “Rowly’s a welcome addition. He has been involved with winning teams. I’m sure that will rub off in a positive way.”

It’s the guys out there doing it. It’s my role to create an environment that allows them to get the best out of themselves

Butch James, Nicky Little, Olly Barkley and Ryan Davis will all benefit from Williams’ knowledge and experience.

Williams intends to develop and improve the individual styles: “I am not some one who believes ‘one size fits all.’

“There is too much going on in the individual dynamic of each player to force him to kick in a particular way.

“I just get them to concentrate on their process so they kick correctly. I will work around the player.

“The credit will always be the players. It’s important to recognise it’s the guys out there doing it.

“It’s my role to create an environment that allows them to get the best out of themselves.”
