Title: SBW's signing a game changer
Post by: Raidercast on November 08, 2019, 05:33:00 PM
A contract drawn up in Toronto with the signature of Sonny Bill Williams scrawled across the bottom can revolutionise rugby league on the international stage in the eyes of Josh Hodgson. The Canberra Raiders and Great Britain hooker has lauded the Wolfpack's audacious two-year deal with Williams reportedly worth up to $10 million. It is hoped the dual-international's return to the 13-man code can fast-track Toronto's plans to grow rugby league in North America after they earned promotion to the English Super League. The Wolfpack have put the noses of some rugby league traditionalists out of joint but Hodgson says their latest move will be a huge boost to the English competition. Now Williams is on a collision course with the Australian Kangaroos set to face Toronto in a tour match next year.
