Throughout his decorated union and league career, SBW has come up against some of the biggest and best players on the planet.

But now, after hanging up the boots for over a year, the legendary New Zealander has revealed exactly who he hated playing against the most.

Appearing on The Rush Hour, radio host Mark Geyer asked SBW: "Is there a player who stood out who you've played against that you thought 'ahh geez, I don't want to play against him again'?"

To which Williams replied: "Greg Inglis. I don't know if you remember in 2013 where they put me in the centres to defend against him because all their tries were coming down the left edge.

"I said to myself before the game about mental warfare. I said to myself 'I want to show this dude'.

"Bro, first five minutes I shoot out of the line and read the play. He catches the ball and I hit him with a perfect hit. That man just threw me off, ran under the posts and scored a try."
