Ali Williams plays superhero to break up a fight

Ali Williams plays superhero to break up a fight

All Black and Crusaders player Ali Williams, who is often seen as a villain on and off the field, is being hailed as a hero after breaking up a fight in Christchurch on the weekend.

Williams and a couple of team mates were out on the town after the Hurricanes game when trouble broke out.

"There was this group of 20 to 25 year olds all arguing... Then all of a sudden a brawl just started between about six people and then Ali Williams rushed up and saved the day," says eye witness Max Rooney.

The big lock, no stranger to off-field misbehaviour himself, is shown getting in amongst a group of five or six brawling young men, and stopping the fight.

All the action was captured on camera phone and released on ONE News evening edition.

to say the least, I'm not an Ali fan. However, it is great to see him "sort stuff out" positively.If it was one of the Brumbies or Waratahs, they would have actually been starting the fight.

Cheyanqu, mate, you say some weird effin things sometimes. I'd say most of it only you understand too. lolWhat on earth do you mean about the Brumbies or the Waratahs?? Referring to guys like Sailor and Dunning? Maybe. Not sure about the Brumbies though..?

I reckon it's rather pathetic how some of the guys who would have been involved in the fight seemed to gang up behind Ali against the one cocky guy (probably a scrumhalf) who still wanted to fight, except not against Ali.

Please, he wasn't in there to break it up - he jumped in to join in the fight. If the short dude he was chasing didn't back away it would have been game on. Just read his body language.

is it just me, or does he look like "The Gimp" from Pulp Fiction?-- the mask and Ali's rangy build
