SYDNEY, June 11 AAP - Tony Williams says the birth of his first child has been a huge help in his rediscovering the form that made him one of the most feared players in the NRL.

Williams became a father last month and returned to the Canterbury side in style last Saturday with a try in the win over struggling North Queensland in Townsville.

The giant NSW and Australia representative was sidelined for two games due to knee and ankle problems.

But the 24-year-old former Manly back-rower said the time off gave him plenty of time to reflect on his form in addition to spending time with his newborn son Trey.

"It's definitely helped me put things in perspective," Williams said.

"My family is very important to me and have been throughout my career

"I still have a lot of improvement to do. I haven't hit my best form yet and injuries haven't helped that.

"But a couple of more games and I should be there.

"I like to put more pressure on myself and I haven't played my best this year."

Williams will face his former club at Brookvale on Friday but despite going back to his former stomping ground he said he's not expecting any abuse from the Sea Eagles supporters.

"I don't think that'll happen," he said.

"I enjoyed my time there, and to be honest I haven't thought too much about going back.

"I am just concentrating and doing my best for Canterbury."
