Sonny Bill Williams spotted with Leeds Rhinos shirt

Sonny Bill Williams Toronto

In one of the most unusual turns of 2021, Sonny Bill Williams has been handed a Leeds Rhinos shirt by his friend Bodene Thompson.

The duo played together at the Toronto Wolfpack in their ill-fated one and only season in Super League back in 2020, but have stayed in touch ever since.

And, with Williams’ journey to the UK over the weekend to cheer on Joseph Parker in his major boxing bout with Derek Chisora, the New Zealand pair met up for old times’ sake.

In doing so, Thompson handed Williams a signed Leeds shirt as a token of goodwill in an Instagram post with the caption: “Love you my uso safe travels home see you soon inshallah.”

The Kiwi has also released an autobiography recently, titled: Sonny Bill Williams: You Can’t Stop the Sun from Shining, which sees Williams bare all in an incredible memoir of the life of an icon.

As a rising NRL star, Williams revealed he turned to smoking and sleeping tablets to deal with the pressure.

That pressure was especially gruelling after a 2005 drink-driving incident saw Williams being thrust into the limelight to make a public apology.

After exiting the Wolfpack in 2020, Williams made his way back to the NRL, signing with Sydney Roosters before hanging up his boots up in March 2021.
