The moment in question comes after Gatland’s first Six Nations game in charge of Wales.

This was an away game against England in which the men in red recorded one of their most famous wins with an incredible comeback at Twickenham to record their first victory at the home of English rugby for 16 years.

Williams says the confrontation took place after the game when the players were celebrating at the stadium. Listen to Williams’ full account of the story in the video below.
