Sonny Bill Williams ‘heading home’ as next club set to be confirmed

In a phone call on Wednesday night, Sonny Bill Williams said the words to Trent Robinson that set up his stunning return to the NRL.

“I want to come home,” the 34-year-old told the Roosters coach.

The Roosters already had the maximum 30 players in their ranks but released outside back Asu Kepaoa to free up a spot for the two -time World Cup winner.

His future remains up in the air after Toronto Wolfpack pulled out of this year’s Super League, freeing up several former NRL players.

Greenwood followed his father Dick into an England shirt. While his father was a prickly back row player, the younger Greenwood was one of the finest centres to grace the England midfield.
