Massive offer to lure SBW back to league


//

Sonny Bill Williams has reportedly been offered a huge deal to come back and play rugby league – but not in the NRL.

SBW is likely to feature in this year’s Rugby World Cup as the All Blacks attempt to defend the Webb Ellis trophy, although it’s said the international star is keeping his options open for next year with word is spreading he could be willing to switch codes.

It was always thought if the Kiwi returned to league the only team he’d take the field for would be the Sydney Roosters, mostly because of Williams’ relationship with club chairman Nick Politis.

Yet now it appears there’s a new suitor for SBW’s services, with English Championship side Toronto Wolfpack, reportedly making an offer to his manager Khoder Nasser after a reported meeting in the Middle East Last year.

According to Fox Sports, the Canadian rugby league team is willing to dish out the big bucks to land their man, which is reportedly around $5 million for one season.

Toronto’s owner David Argyle told the website the club would love to have Williams join the team.

 “We are working towards making Sonny Bill Williams a Wolfpack player for 2020. We would love to have him join the Wolfpack family and we will pay whatever it takes to make that happen,” Argyle said.

“The excitement he would bring to the sport of rugby league in this country would be incredible.

“Having someone of his talent join the Wolfpack would greatly raise the profile of the club, but also help move the game forward globally.

“Sonny is a phenomenal athlete. He is rugby’s LeBron James and we see his recruitment as bigger than when David Beckham joined LA Galaxy. He is box office and puts bums on seats.

“It may be one of his last seasons and I am sure that rugby fans - whether league or union - across North America will travel to Toronto to see a player of his quality represent the Wolfpack.”

The Wolfpack has recruited Leeds Rhinos coach Brian McDermott after narrowly missing out on promotion to the Super League this season and the club is set to become the first rugby league team to release their own Cannabidiol (CBD)wellness products.
