Sonny Bill Williams reveals his sons don’t want to play for All Blacks

New Zealand superstar Sonny Bill Williams has revealed his sons would prefer playing for the Springboks instead of All Blacks.

The 38-year-old married South African model Alana Raffie (whom he met at a shop) in 2013.

The two got married in a secret ceremony held in August 2013 after dating for approximately six months. Alana and her husband managed to keep their relationship a secret until they announced it on social media in 2014.

Their family and friends who attended the wedding ceremony that was held just before the 2013 NRL grand final swore not to tell anyone about the wedding and even Sonny’s Roosters teammates, as well as his close buddy, Anthony Mundine, were left out.

Since tying the knot, Alana and Sonny stayed away from social media and even rejected an opportunity to get paid six figures by selling their wedding to television and glossy magazines.

The Williams’ have four children, daughters Iman and Aisha, and sons Zaid and Essa.

“Cape Town is my second home,” Williams told

“Maybe one day my two boys might be playing in Green and Gold.

“They’ve told me that’s what they’d like.

“They love the Springboks.”

Incredibly, Williams couldn’t find a place for former team-mates Dan Carter and Richie McCaw, who played a combined 260 test matches for the All Blacks.

Williams said: “You just have to watch some of his highlights videos on the football field to realise what a talent he is. He’s another guy who can just create something out of nothing and I don’t think gets the credit he deserves.”
