REPORT | Sonny Bill Williams becomes the highest-paid player in rugby history

Sonny Bill Williams has reportedly accepted a jaw-dropping deal that will make him the richest player in rugby league and rugby union history.

Danny Weidler reported on Nine News Williams had accepted the jaw-dropping, two-year deal with English Super League side the Toronto Wolfpack.


“He’s made his mind up to play for the Toronto Wolfpack who play in the English Super League,” Weidler said. “The deal is stunning — $10m for two years’ work.

“Incredible money.”
