Co-captain and inspiration, Sharni Williams played a crucial role as Australia won rugby sevens' first-ever Gold Medal at the Olympic Games in August 2016. Along with partner-in-crime Shannon Parry, Sharni lays the platform for Australia's talented backs to strut their stuff around the World Series circuit.

From Batlow in country New South Wales, the qualified mechanic had played in every leg of the Women's Sevens World Series since its inception in November 2012 until injury ruled her out of the Sao Paulo Sevens in February 2016.
However, Williams did return in time to be named in the final round of the 2015-16 season in Clermont that saw her side win the country's first-ever World Series.
