All Black centre Sonny Bill Williams has extended his stay in New Zealand, signing a one-year extension to his All Black contract. He has also confirmed that he will be available for the Chiefs in Super Rugby for 2012.
Williams has become something of an iconic figure in the rugby world of late – a reasonably interesting phenomenon given the bit-part he ended up playing in New Zealand’s 2011 Rugby World Cup triumph. His partnership with Robbie Freuan in midfield was one of the highlights of a great campaign for the Crusaders in Super Rugby this year, but in Richard Kahui he will no doubt find an equally adept foil in Chiefs colours.
Williams will apparently also continue his professional boxing career.Tweet
