Matty Johns: Sonny Bill Williams Heading To Sydney Roosters
As we reported back in February, Sonny Bill Williams will reportedly go to the Sydney Roosters next year, with the "deal all but done" according to Triple M's Matty Johns. "But is it worth it?" Johns asked.

Sonny Bill Williams will reportedly go to the Sydney Roosters next year, according to Triple M's Matty Johns.
"That was put on hold with the Japanese rugby offer [on the table]. We can reveal now that by all reports we're hearing, the deal is all but done... they believe that most certainly Sonny Bill Williams will be at the Roosters next year," Johns explained.
"But is it worth it?" Johns asked. "He's going to play 12 games in Japan with Panasonic. Through his time at the Roosters he'll go to South Africa to do one boxing match. And he'll only sign a one year deal, so after 12 months of all that, you'll have to go through it again."
Anyone who saw the crap we put together yesterday, at the Sydney Football Stadium, it was embarrassing to be a Roosters supporter... We need a player of his ability," Triple M's Gus Worland, the Grill Team's resident Roosters supporter.
Do the Sydney Roosters need Sonny Bill Williams?
