Is SBW ready for 7s?
Rugby Union and League Star Sonny Bill Williams
Sonny Bill Williams, one of the biggest names in Rugby Union and League, has been once more related to a potential move to 7s for Rio 2016. His agent confirmed that interest has been raised towards New Zealand Sevens head coach Gordon Tietjens. However the experienced coach also emphasised that "it won't be as simple as signing on the dotted line". Any potential 7s player has to pass a gruelling trial before making the team.
Tietjens further said towards the online magazine stuff.co.nz that he has seen it many times where, there are some very good rugby players out there, but they're not sevens players. They don't have an understanding of the game,''.
Whether Williams will make into the team or not won't be decided before next years Rugby World Cup. Sonny Bill Williams recently returned to the game of Rugby Union after a two year stint in Rugby League with the Sydney based side Roosters.
