The number eight arrives at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park for the 2016-17 season bringing a formidable ball-carrying presence.
 
The move brings an end to a four-year stint at Ulster where he firmly became a fans’ favourite.
 
He won the Players’ Player of the Year award in his first season at Ulster, where he also scooped the Guinness PRO12 Player of the Season award.
 
Williams enjoyed a renaissance in the 2015-16 and was named Ulster Rugby Personality of the Year.
 
Williams joined Munster in 2008 and helped them secure the PRO12 title in his debut season.
 
He later moved to Italian outfit Aironi, where he scored 10 tries in 31 league games, before linking up with Ulster.
 
Williams, who has represented New Zealand at Under-21 level and the Junior All Blacks, had a successful career in his homeland, making 37 Super Rugby appearances for the Blues during a four-year spell.
