RUCK has pulled together a list of the three current professional players you may not have even realised were Muslim.
Irrespective of their religion, what they have in common with other players is an enormous contribution to society through their professional rugby careers.
Meet some great rugby related Muslims.
1. Sonny Bill Williams (Blues/New Zealand)
Williams converted to Islam in 2009, while in France playing for Toulon. Therefore, he is the first Muslim to play for the All Blacks. In 2018 he performed an Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca and Medinah.
For me everything starts with being grateful. Family, sport, life. Alhumdulliah 🤲🏽❤️ pic.twitter.com/iFZX6TDu8b— Sonny Bill Williams (@SonnyBWilliams) September 22, 2019
