Chester signs with Romania

South African World Cup winner Chester Williams will on Monday formally take up his role as technical director to Romanian side Dinamo Bucarest, the Mediafax news agency reported on Sunday.

Williams, 37, and a mainstay of the 1995 World Cup-winning Springbok side in which he was the only black player, moved into coaching last year after injuries curtailed his playing career in 2000 after 27 caps which saw him score 14 tries.

He coached the national sevens side in his homeland for two years before taking charge of the Ugandan national side and then having a spell with Tunisia.

Williams had been short-listed as a possible successor to South Africa’s 2007 World Cup winning coach Jake White before the job went to Peter De Villiers.

Dinamo Bucarest won their 15th league title last season.
