Sharks centre, Heimar Williams, took some time out to chat to us about life in sunny Durban.
How were the holidays for you, what did you get up to?
I had a really fantastic break. I enjoyed Christmas with the family and went to Jeffrey’s Bay for New Years with friends.
Best present you received?
A Sterling watch.
Any holiday traditions you want to share?
Every December our family goes down to Struisbaai for the holidays
Do you have a girl friend?
No. I’m single.
How was your first training session back at the Sharks?
It’s always great to be back. We had a busy but very enjoyable day of training, which consisted of testing and normal training.
Any new team mates?
Yes. Tim Swiel, Ettiene and Lourens.
How was your first meeting with Jake White?
It was a good first meeting, just set some goals on what we want to achieve this season and where we are heading as a team
How are you feeling about the warm up match against Saracens in London?
I am very excited, as it is my first time going to London so I’m looking forward to it!
Do you think playing against Saracens in the winter in the Northern Hemisphere will help prepare the Sharks for the upcoming Super Rugby tournament?
I see it as a great opportunity for us to measure and compete with one of the best clubs in the Northern Hemisphere.
Is there any team in particular you would like to play against in the Super Rugby tournament?
I would really like to get my first cap this season. It would be a great experience to play against the Crusaders.
Any upcoming players we must look out for?
Jaco van Tonder.
If they named an ice cream flavour after you what would it be?
We hear you are quite the authority on trading shares; do you have any tips for us?
Simply put, buy low and sell high.
Who will play against the Sharks in the 2014 Super 15 rugby final?
There are a lot of quality sides in the tournament, so to be part of the final would be an awesome experience. I think it would be special if it were a South African derby.
