Ulster's Rory Scholes 'shocked' by news of Nick Williams departure

Ulster wing Rory Scholes says the news that Nick Williams will leave the Irish province to join Cardiff Blues at the end of the season came as a "bit of a shock".

"Nick has been massive for Ulster for the last four years and the fans enjoy his barnstorming runs and offloads. He is a big personality round the squad," said Scholes.

Scholes adds that it was "awesome" to be involved in the recent Champions Cup wins over Toulouse and assesses the threat posed by Connacht in the forthcoming Pro12 interprovincial derby in Galway.
