Sonny Bill Williams
Sonny Bill Williams is expected to reveal his rugby
league future tomorrow, according to reports.
The Roosters will announce the former All Black as a marquee
signing at a press conference in Sydney on Tuesday morning,
the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
The paper reports that Williams will sign a one year deal
with the Sydney club, which finished 13th last season.
Williams announced his return to the NRL at a press
conference in July signalling his departure from New Zealand
rugby. He has never revealed which team he will sign with,
but it's largely been speculated as the Roosters.
Williams played five seasons for Sydney rival the Bulldogs
between 2004 and 2008 before leaving in controversial
circumstances, quitting the team for French rugby side Toulon
one year into a five-year contract.
In 2010, Williams signed with the NZRU in a bid to play for
the All Blacks at the following year's Rugby World Cup. The
second five-eighth made his ITM Cup debut for Canterbury
later that year and was selected on the All Blacks end of
season tour, becoming only the second person to represent New
Zealand in union after first doing so in league.
It won't take long before he's back playing on New Zealand
The Herald on Sunday reported in the weekend that the
Roosters will likely visit the Warriors in week two of next
season playing at Eden Park - the same ground where Williams
became a Rugby World Cup champion last October.
