SUPER LEAGUESonny Bill Williams to come out of retirement and join Super League clubby Cam Pattison April 1, 2024

Sonny Bill Williams is one of the biggest legends of rugby league and and rugby union and has also chanced his arm in boxing but sadly we saw very little of him in the Betfred Super League.

Williams made his name at the Canterbury Bulldogs helping the Bulldogs win the NRL title in 2004 before taking on then Super League Champions Leeds Rhinos in the 2005 World Club Challenge where he showed the physical ferocity of his ability as well as his skill in a terrific game where he came up short 39-32 but did have a fun coming together against Leeds Rhinos legend Ryan Bailey.

Sadly, the sport would lose Williams to the 15-man game until he returned in 2013 with the Sydney Roosters helping them win the 2013 NRL title and becoming the perfect foil to England superstar and South Sydney Rabbitohs legend Sam Burgess who is currently a Super League coach at Warrington Wolves.

But what of Williams and Super League? He had a very brief stint in Super League in 2020 with the Toronto Wolfpack.

He was their statement signing after promotion in 2019 but the pandemic and the collapse of the Wolfpack meant we had seen the last of him in Super League until now that is…

April Fools!

Did you fall for this? Either way don’t spoil it for others. You can see our last April Fool‘s here which has somewhat come true since.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan
