The top individual honour bestowed on Shane Williams at the International Rugby Board awards dinner could not be more well deserved, says former Wales captain Ieuan Evans.
"There's no doubt [Shane] has sprinkled stardust on world rugby this year.
When you think back to Wales' tour to South Africa Williams lit up both Pretoria and Bloemfontein.
He's on fire at the moment, he's also looking for work as well.
Even if the ball isn't coming his way naturally, he going to try and create something.
He makes people get up off their seats and look down and that's what you want - at the end of the day it's the entertainment business.
And long may it continue. We have the Lions tour in the summer and we hope he's going to continue for some time
With the way he is playing, he's got a few more years left in him yet."
Ieuan Evans was speaking to BBC Sport Wales' Gareth Charles
