Flair on the Field

“If you are in search of a player that encapsulates a sense of flamboyancy, and something just a little out of the ordinary then, Sonny Bill Williams may just be your man,” Kate Rowan writes for the Irish Independent. “Williams may only have 14 caps to his name, half of which came from off the bench but it is the mark of his prodigious skills, star power and ability to switch codes so successfully that has both the Antipodean and wider rugby media so enamoured. When asked to explain what it means to become an All Black, his face lights up. ‘It is really special, but we all understand that we are only caretakers of the jersey, as there is so much good talent coming through to take your spot if you don’t play well,’ Williams says.”
