Big Ali on his way back up the mountain

The Blues coach Pat Lam believes former All Black lock Ali Williams is definitely on the way back to his best.

Williams started his fourth straight Super Rugby game for the Blues against the Western Force in Perth on Saturday night.

The 61-test veteran missed almost two full years of Super Rugby because of multiple achilles injuries, and his aim is to make this year's World Cup squad.

And Lam says he's going about it the right way with the work he's done behind the scenes, Williams is their best aerial forward and he's on the way back up the mountain.
