‘Disappointing’: Free agent Zac Williams walks out on GWS Giants

Days after missing the finals for the first time in five years, Greater Western Sydney have suffered a major blow after Zac Williams informed the club he was exploring his free agency options.

Williams has left a long-term contract offer from the Giants on the table all season, and has been consistently linked to a move interstate with Carlton among his strongest suitors.

The 26-year-old broke the news to the Giants on Monday, with his preferred destination a Victorian club that would allow him to be closer to his Albury-based sister.

Losing Williams is a particularly bitter outcome for GWS, given the talented half-back flanker is a NSW product who grew up in Narrandera, came through the club’s academy pathway and was mentored by inaugural coach Kevin Sheedy.
