Just like Guscott was, rising star Ben Williams is being nurtured at the Rec but all of the signs this season are that the 21-year-old is destined for a career at the top level.
The former Bryanston School pupil Williams has already come off the bench to devastating effect to score two tries in the Aviva Premiership against Northampton and Sale to give boss Steve Meehan a welcome selection headache.
Williams will look to current England international Shontayne Hape and Olly Barkley, currently exiled by team manager Martin Johnson, for guidance and admits he could not be in a better environment to flourish.
“Playing alongside class internationals like Olly Barkley makes my job as the new youngster so much easier,” said Williams.
“Communication wise he is always there to provide me with direction and he is a reassuring presence.
“I am still young, I am only 21 and there are lots of areas I need to work on and improve on and that’s what I intend to do.
“I need to focus on core aspects like tackling, passing and kicking. If I keep on working hard, hopefully they will improve.
“I just need to keep my head down and keep on performing well and when I get my chance I will hopefully stake a claim for a regular place in the side.
“And having Sir Ian McGeechan around the squad has been awesome for me and the squad. He gives you little tips and pieces of advice that help so much.”
