Born and raised in Victoria, Brad Williams burst on to the first-class scene as a 19-year-old in the 1994-95 season. He was raw in build and experience but even at that stage was touted as a potential star. His blistering pace set him apart from most club bowlers and encouraged some to think that he might even be an automatic selection for his country within a few years. However, it was a move to Western Australia at the start of the 1999-2000 season that ensured he ultimately moved in the right direction and became a revitalised bowler. Taking 50 wickets in his debut first-class campaign with the Warriors, he enjoyed a purple patch and in 2001-02 was called up to the national one-day squad.

In four Tests against Zimbabwe, India and Sri Lanka he collected nine victims to put alongside 35 in 25 one-day appearances. He twice took five-wicket hauls in green and gold and was a useful member until the winter tour of Zimbabwe in 2004. He then struggled with back, shoulder and knee problems and his relationship with the Warriors suffered badly last summer when he was suspended for the rest of the season in November. Williams refused to play in the ING Cup after being dropped from the Pura Cup side and was withdrawn from all state duties. He later moved to Queensland's Gold Coast and began working as a house painter.
