Crusaders lock Ali Williams lived up to his nickname of ‘Comical Ali’ by wearing a Spiderman outfit to training on Monday ahead of his personal Super 14 rugby grudge match against the Blues this week


After completing training, the 46-test All Black stunned journalists gathered for questions when he emerged in the superhero’s costume according to NZPA.


Williams answered a handful of questions before scampering back inside the training sheds, prompted by fellow-lock Ross Filipo who was clad in the uniform of another comic book hero, the Phantom.


A Crusaders spokesman said Williams’ antics were a method to alleviate the pressure in a big week.


Williams ended six seasons with the Blues in controversial fashion last year, walking away from the franchise following a rift with coach David Nucifora.


Williams was sent home from South Africa ahead of the Blues’ semifinal as punishment for off-field misdemeanours.
