Lee Williams came through the Wales Rugby League junior development system and was one of the first two players, the other being Gil Dudson, to graduate from U16 all the way up to playing for the Wales men's side. Starting his rugby league with Aberavon Fighting Irish at aged 15, Lee won a Wales U16 cap the following year, scoring a try against England. A year later, he was winning his first Wales U18 cap and when Celtic Crusaders started in 2006, he played in the first ever friendly match at aged 17, making his competitive debut just after his 18th birthday. Later that season, he was given the ultimate youth accolade at that time by being made captain of Great Britain U18s. He was a regular in the Celtic Crusaders Colts side when they won the Conference National title in 2008 and played for the Crusaders first team and reserves in Super League a year later. After playing for Wales Dragonhearts, he made his full Wales debut in 2008 and was part of the 2009 Wales side that won the European Cup. He was then a regular in the South Wales Scorpions side in 2010 and 2011 before moving to Australia a year later to play for Mackay Cutters, having been brought over there by then coach Anthony Seibold, remaining in that country.
