Sea Eagles winger David Williams has put an unhappy 2014 behind him and is determined to push his way back into NRL contention.

As Manly prepare for their first trial against Cronulla at Pittwater Park this Saturday, Williams says he is hungry to succeed upon his return. 

“For me that was quite a while ago,” Williams said when asked about the lengthy suspension handed down to him in July last year. “I’ve been training for a long time now, so I’m just really looking forward to getting back this weekend and putting all that behind me.”

Despite missing out on the majority of the 2014 season, Williams conceded retirement never crossed his mind during his time off the field. 

“I’ve broken my neck before and I came back from that, so I don’t think that ever crossed my mind. I trained hard during my time off during the season last year and I’ve been training hard this preseason," Williams said.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the field starting here at Pittwater Park.”
