All Blacks legend Sonny Bill Williams is on the hunt for a new club after it was confirmed Toronto Wolfpack will not return to Super League in 2021.
They resigned from the 2020 competition in July after former owner David Argyle withdrew, stating he could no longer fund the club.
Wolfpack bosses on Monday failed to convince Super League clubs they had an adequate business plan, leaving the Canadian club’s future in limbo.
Williams was on a staggering two-year $10m contract at the club, but is now reportedly a free agent once again.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports 58-cap All Black has “no interest” to play anywhere else and will instead concentrate on boxing.
According to the newspaper, the 35-year-old All Black and Kiwis great had neck surgery this week but plans to get in the ring this summer to fight AFL star Barry Hall.

LIST | World Rugby name their SIX best cross-code players of all-time
World Rugby have picked out the SIX most successful players to convert to rugby union direct from rugby league.
Here is who they picked in no particular order…
Jason Robinson (England)
What they said: “Known as ‘Billy Whizz’ for his electric pace and dazzling footwork, the former Wigan and Great Britain RL ace terrified the life out of rugby union defences in an international career that spanned six years (2001-07) and included two Rugby World Cup finals. He scored England’s only try in the 2003 success against Australia and went on two British & Irish Lions tours.”
Brad Thorn (New Zealand)
What they Said: “One of a rare breed of cross-coders to succeed as a forward, the no-holds-barred second-rower holds the distinction of being capped by Australia in rugby league and New Zealand in rugby union. After making his name with Brisbane Broncos in rugby league, Thorn enjoyed a highly decorated career in rugby union, winning the Rugby World Cup in 2011.”
