Earlier On Triple M:

Sonny Bill Williams has signed a one year deal with Sydney Roosters but not everyone is happy.

Matty Johns says it's great for the game. "There's no doubt that he's one of highest profiled rugby union player on the planet, the return to NRL is a huge boost for the game ...For the general NRL fan it's fantastic, but for Bulldogs fans and players it's still raw."

The announcement was made at a Sydney Roosters press conference where the club admitted the hard thing was now integrating Sonny Bill into the season for his one-year stint.

Hazem El Masri has already spoken out, and he's not alone, with other Bulldogs teammates said to still be waiting for an apology from the controversial back-rower.

Later today Sonny Bill is set to announce a one-year deal with the Roosters after meeting with NRL boss Shane Mattiske at League Central late yesterday.
