Sonny Bill Williams is a dual international, having represented New Zealand at Rugby League, and is the first All Black to have achieved the feat since the 1920s. Sonny Bill Williams has also taken part in several professional boxing fights in the past few years. Since his conversion to Rugby Union Williams has been a revelation. Having begun with Toulon, before his move to Canterbury in the summer of 2010, his offloading game has been outstanding. With pace and power that few can match, Sonny Bill Williams has become a potent attacking force. He made his debut for the All Blacks against England in the Autumn of 2010. He is set to be one of the star turns at the 2011 World Cup.
