Owen Williams is a Cardiff Blues and Welsh International centre who showed superb talent on the rugby field.  Owen was representing Cardiff Blues in the the World Club 10's tournament in Singapore last year when he suffered a significant injury to his cervical vertebrae and spinal cord.  The injury suffered by Owen is truly awful for any rugby player and their family.  To suffer in this way at such a young age, playing the game you love and doing your job could be devastating, however to see Owen bouncing back from this in his rehabilitation brings a tear to the eye and ensures plenty of motivation whenever the training gets tough. 

Please give all you can, and encourage others to do likewise to support Owen and his family.

You can hear about Owen's progress in his own words in this Scrum V interview, and read more of my support in this blog post.
