SBW to Toronto??

Recommended Posts

This chatter came up yesterday on the TWP Facebook page. What, if any, other evidence is there for this rumour?

Not trying to be provocative, but who is saying this?

Would be a massive boost to RL in this country seeing someone like him playing in the Championship would be a must see.

Hes 33 so would probably finish his career over here

These same people wanted their one eyed opinions to count the same as forward thinking clubs with an idea about the future and growing the game and not keeping it in former pit towns.

...until someone else waved a wad of banknotes at him. Then he'd be off like a shot.

Quote

Toronto Wolfpack owner David Argyle says the club are on the verge of signing one of the biggest names in rugby union, League Weekly have reported.

Many players have been linked with Canadian club on social media, but its seems that global sporting superstar Sonny Bill Williams is the name on everyone’s lips.

Going by Twitter, Argyle said it.  One of the top 5 rugby players in the world, apparently - and thinking about it, isn’t there some form of salary cap dispensation for RU players?

Media can write anything.  Yorkshire Post quoted Fifita to Leeds a few days ago, then wrote another story today saying it was all untrue.  That said, just talk of that kind of money being available will generate Agent interest.

Should that not be "the top 5,000 rugby players in the world play RL"

What about the Rugby World Cup coming up 

Well he will be 36 by then but I suppose he could have a crack at selection for the Kiwis.

New York should start in the Championship as Toronto should have done. 

I suspect they'd be pleased to be given that go-ahead to start anywhere at all...
