Australian journalist believes Sam Williams is heading for Super League

Wakefield Trinity 24-22 Salford Red Devils

Former Wakefield Trinity halfback Sam Williams is exiting the Canberra Raiders.

The 31-year-old has made over 100 NRL appearances after three different spells with the Green Machine as well as a short stint with the St George Illawarra Dragons.

Williams has also been with Wakefield Trinity and Catalans Dragons in Super League and has revealed that he has been offered a return to the UK top flight.

“There are opportunities over here in Australia and overseas in the Super League, but it is a decision that me and the family have to make – whether or not it is something we want to pursue,” Williams told the Canberra website.

“I’m lucky in the sense that my body has held up pretty well over the years and that I’m not moving on because I can’t get out of bed and go to training anymore.

“I don’t want to say it is the end but if there are opportunities we want to do as a family then we will look to do that too.”

It remains to be seen which Super League sides have made an offer for the halfback, though Castleford Tigers, Warrington Wolves and Wakefield themselves look to be having halfback dilemmas.

Williams made 12 appearances for the Dragons in 2014 and then another 24 for Wakefield in 2017 before he moved back to Canberra in 2018.

Now, though, respected Australian journalist The Mole, who works for Channel 9, has revealed that Williams is set for a move to Super League – to who though it is yet to be confirmed.
