Wolfpack-bound Sonny Bill Williams hits Gold Coast for 30-day boot camp

Having finished his All Blacks career without a third World Cup winners medal, SBW joined new UK Super League outfit the Toronto Wolfpack on a big-money two-year deal.

Ahead of the 2020 season, Williams and his family flew to the Gold Coast, so the 34-year-old can prepare his body for league.

He says he's confident he'll get back into the swing of things quickly.

"When it comes to skill and knowing the game, I grew up playing it so that will be no different," he said. "It's probably just the physical demands I'll have to tap into this month."

Samoan link could help Wolfpack lure SBW

Wolfpack coach Brian McDermott is understood to have flown to Japan to meet with Williams, who is reportedly set to be offered a $9 million, two-year deal to finish his playing career in Canada.

The newly promoted Super League club has also been linked to NFL hopeful Christian Wade, a former England rugby union winger who is on the Buffalo Bills practice squad, but believe Williams could have a similar impact for the code in North America to David Beckham signing for LA Galaxy.
