Headlines 06/11/2019

Sonny Bill Williams has signed with English Super League newcomers Toronto Wolfpack, according to reports.

Australian broadcaster 9 News is reporting that Williams has signed a two-year deal with the club, worth $10 million.

At the weekend, it was revealed Williams would be offered a stake in the club, should he sign.

Williams' contract with New Zealand Rugby is up, but the 34-year-old has yet to confirm the move.

According to the 9 News report, the signing sees Williams become rugby league's highest-paid player.

It comes as it was also revealed the Wolfpack had been in discussions about turning Williams' first season with them into a documentary series.

The Wolfpack just earned promotion into the English Super League, and owner David Argyle wanted to lure a David Beckham-type personality to lead his club into the rugby league major leagues.
