Big Ali trains with the All Blacks

1:37 pm on 29 October 2010

The injured Auckland lock Ali Williams has attended All Blacks training, almost two years after making his last Test appearance.

Williams has been dogged by Achilles tendon injuries since early last year but went through fitness work with All Black trainers Nick Gill and Pete Gallagher while the squad had their last serious hit out before tomorrow's Bledisloe Cup Test against the Wallabies at Hong Kong Stadium.

The 61-cap veteran played his last international against England at Twickenham on the 2008 end of year tour and is intent of reviving his Test career before next year's World Cup.
