Ending weeks of speculation when he signed a ground-breaking two year deal with the Wolfpack ahead of the 2020 Season, Sonny Bill Williams is an international, duel-code superstar that will bring plenty of excitement both on and off the field for the Wolfpack during their maiden Super League Season.
A two-time Rugby World Cup winner, NRL Premiership holder, Super Rugby Title winner, undefeated heavyweight boxer and much more, Williams is one of the most well-known sportsmen on the planet. 2020 will be the New Zealand international’s debut season in the Super League and one that will be watched intently from all corners of the globe.
A proven performer at the highest levels of both Rugby League and Union, Williams joined the Wolfpack at the conclusion of his third Rugby World Cup appearance. One of only twenty players to have won multiple World Cups, he was a crucial part of the All Blacks teams that triumphed in the 2011 and 2015 tournaments.
The news of Williams’ signing travelled all over the world and put the Wolfpack name on the lips of hundreds of media outlets. An established star of international sport, he will be looking to achieve further success with the Wolfpack in 2020 during their historic Super League debut.
