Sad fact behind Sonny Bill's tribute


//

All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams was reportedly on his way to meet with Canterbury Bulldogs players when news broke of the terrorist act in Christchurch.

According to News Corp, Williams was on his way to meet with the Bulldogs players to hand out jerseys to club’s rookies who were to make their NRL debuts in the massive loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

But following his emotional Instagram post, Williams decided head home, telling his former club he was too distraught to attend.

 “It was such a tragic and emotional event and everyone understood the need for Sonny to be with his family,” said Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill.

“Our players are no different to anyone else,” Hill said.

“It’s extremely sad and we’re all horrified.

“The club’s thoughts are with the people of Christchurch.

“We have a few players of New Zealand heritage who are feeling it most. We’re just supporting each other.”

Williams is the first Muslim player to represent the All Blacks and found it hard to comprehend the atrocity.

“I’m just deeply saddened, saddened that this would happen in New Zealand,” he said in his video message.

“I just heard the news and I couldn’t put into words how I’m feeling right now.”
