A frustrated Sonny Bill Williams will accept a three-match ban for a shoulder charge in last Thursday night's season opener, denying Sydney Roosters and the NRL of one of the game's biggest drawcards for the grand final replay against Manly. Roosters officials were stunned when Williams was charged with a grade-two shoulder charge over a tackle on George Burgess in the last minute of the premier's 28-8 loss to South Sydney but Fairfax Media has been told they have reluctantly decided against fighting the charge. It is understood the Roosters had considered seeking to have the charge downgraded to a grade-one offence, which still would have sidelined Williams for next Saturday's match against Parramatta and the following weekend's trip to Brisbane.

Simply meeting his new Brisbane teammates made Ben Barba nervous. But the Broncos are backing a more settled Barba to prosper amid an anticipated hot reception from former Bulldogs colleagues and their passionate fans in the NRL clash at ANZ Stadium on Friday night. A glimpse of what Barba can expect following his off-season switch was provided 12 months ago when Canterbury vented their spleen at another former golden boy, Sonny Bill Williams. The Broncos aren't predicting fullback Barba will match Williams' two-try match-winning performance that day but they're quietly confident the ex-Dally M Medallist can help them crash Canterbury's opening round party. "Tomorrow night no doubt he will get a pretty hostile reception. Once he gets through that he will be fine," Griffin said. "But whether we are playing the Bulldogs or not, it is not an issue. "It probably makes for good theatre but we are trying to win a footy game." Griffin revealed Barba appeared nothing like the confident performer who led the Bulld ...
As we count down to season 2014, identifies 30 players who will be crucial to their team's fortunes this year. From new faces to rising stars to proven performers who will need to lift this season, these are our 'MVPs' for 2014. What else is there to say about Sonny Bill Williams? In 2013 he came, he saw and he conquered – at NRL level, if not the World Cup – as the biggest of the Sydney Roosters' three big signings. The former Bulldogs-prodigy-turned-All Black lived up to all expectations in his return to the NRL, helping to transform the Roosters from bottom-eight strugglers into major and minor premiers. He couldn't repeat the trick with the Kiwis at the year-ending World Cup, falling to a mighty Kangaroos side in the final, but Sonny's return season in the NRL was undoubtedly a success. To top it all off, Williams was named the best player on the planet in 2013 by taking out the RLIF's International Player of the Year award. Have you picked your Holden NRL Fantasy team yet? The question no ...

Things Learned from Auckland 9`s 1. Nines does not need a plethora of stars Fears that a low volume of superstars would hold back the tournament proved unfounded, with the squads really turning it on via a combination of emerging talent, some journeymen and a smattering of marquee players. Sure there was no Sonny Bill Williams, Johnathan Thurston, Sam (or any) Burgess or Jamie Lyon. But for every Shaun Johnson, James Tamou or Josh Dugan who got the crowd on their feet whenever they got near the Steeden, a Sam Tagataese, Fuifui Moimoi or Willie Mason generated a heap of excitement, too. Chuck in the enthusiasm and precocious skills of youngsters like Kyle Feldt, Semi Radradra, Valentine Holmes, Jake Mamo, Kodi Nikorima and Solomone Kata and it was a recipe for success. 2. Business as usual when it comes to early injuries It's same old, same old for some teams who will need to make contingency plans in key positions for the opening rounds of the NRL season following some bad luck with injuries at the Nines. ...

Cowboys wrecking-ball Jason Taumalolo has some bad news for NRL opposition currently tightening their defences: he plans to run over the top of so many of you that by the end of the 2014 season it will be as synonymous as Thurston's 'show-and-go' or Sonny Bill's offload. He doesn't have a name for it yet but with a renewed focus under new coach Paul Green, Taumalolo is determined to make every hit-up and tackle count for plenty this season. Shortly after making his NRL debut in 2010 at 17 years, two months and 21 days, Taumalolo was referred to as the next Sonny Bill Williams. But rather than working on an offload through the line, the 20-year-old is developing a trademark of his own that is a little more direct. "That's a huge compliment, being compared to one of the game's most elite players," Taumalolo told "Obviously I want to be playing at the same level as Sonny Bill but I definitely don't want to be the 'next Sonny Bill'. I want to play my own game and hopefully make a trademark as being o ...
Warrington Wolves complete NRL training week with trip to champion side Sydney Roosters. WARRINGTON Wolves completed a busy week of training alongside NRL clubs with a trip to reigning champions the Sydney Roosters on Saturday. Joing Trent Robinson's Roosters for the final session of their official first week of 2014 pre-Season training, Wolves completed a workout alongside Rugby League superstars Sonny Bill Williams and Anthony Minichiello among others. In the first of three sessions Wolves will undertake with Sydney Roosters, the players took part in a couple of mixed 9s games before some goal-line defence in a 13 v 13 format.
A humble Johnathan Thurston says it'll take him a few days to accept his status among Rugby League's greats after winning the coveted Golden Boot for a second time. The Australian, Queensland and North Queensland five-eighth is only the third player to take out the Rugby League World magazine award twice, alongside Andrew Johns and Darren Lockyer. Thurston, man of the match in the Kangaroos' World Cup final win over New Zealand at Old Trafford in November, edged out England forward Sam Burgess to follow up his 2011 success. Dual-code New Zealand international Sonny Bill Williams came third in the voting - which is conducted by a panel of journalists - with Australian captain Cameron Smith fourth and Huddersfield's Scotland captain Danny Brough fifth. "It's obviously a huge honour to receive it; there's a lot of great players running around in the game today," Thurston told reporters at Cowboys HQ on Friday. "To have my name alongside Joey and Locky to win it twice, it's pretty special. "It probably won't ...

WARNING WARNING WARNING. Here is the biggest lie of all, in 2012 Roosters where done for breaching the salary cap by $14,348 as you will read this in story 1, Now in Story 2 they will tell you that in 2012 Roosters where under the Salary cap by $300,000 that's how they where able to Lure SBW, JENNINGS, MALONEY, O'DONNELL. BUSTED! 1. Seven clubs have been fined by the NRL for salary cap breaches, with Cronulla and Canberra handed the largest sanctions. The Sharks have been fined $150,000, while the Raiders face a $144,393 penalty following the NRL's final salary cap audit of the 2012 season. Newcastle ($88,749), Manly ($85,000), Gold Coast ($16,217), Sydney Roosters ($14,348 2. The Roosters, traditionally one of the NRL's biggest spenders, went through 2012 with a playing squad $300,000 below the salary cap. The rare shortfall explains how the lucrative off-season recruitment drive was calculated, with superstar duo Sonny Bill Williams and Jennings signing on in the summer. Recruitment boss Peter O'Sulliva ...

Sonny Bill Williams now looks set to skip the Auckland Nines, only hours after speculation to the contrary. The fledgling tournament appeared to have been granted a huge boost by securing Williams' services, but his manager has now said the code-hopper will not join his Sydney Roosters teammates next month at Eden Park. Khoder Nasser told TVNZ his client would skip the two-day tournament in favour of preparing for the Roosters' clash with Super League champions Wigan at Allianz Stadium the weekend after the event. The news means Williams will not play alongside league great Brad Fittler, who last week announced he was coming out of retirement to compete in the inaugural edition of the Nines.
Sonny Bill Williams manager Khoder Nasser has confirmed SBW won't have any part in the Auckland Nines comp
Fun fact Friday! Did you know that Rugby Union and Rugby League player Sonny Bill Williams and actress Lucy Lawless both grew up in Mount Albert? One of New Zealand's greatest athletes, Sir Peter Snell (triple Olympic gold medalist, world mile record holder and NZ's athlete of the 20th century) was educated in and was a long-time resident of Mt Albert as was Bryan Williams, an All Black great and president of the NZRFU.
Sydney Roosters great Brad Fittler says he would love to line up alongside Sonny Bill Williams at the Auckland Nines but concedes it's unlikely. Fittler has been lured out of a 10-year retirement to join the tricolours for the inaugural two-day NRL pre-season tournament next month and believes Williams would be a formidable Nines player. The Roosters haven't finalised their squad for the Nines but Fittler said he spoke with coach Trent Robinson on Wednesday who suggested the NRL premiers would rest Williams from the Nines with the World Club Challenge scheduled for the week after. "I spoke to the coach today and they have the World Club Challenge game the week after and they are still indecisive as to whether certain players will play the Nines or the World Club Challenge," Fittler told 2SM's Talkin' Sport. "There hasn't been a final conclusion but there is a big chance Sonny won't be playing which is a shame. "I have played against Sonny and I reckon it would be fun to play with him." When told Williams' ...

Sonny Bill Williams' stunning return to Rugby League was a bright light for Rugby League in 2013, in a season when the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority supplements scandal constantly lurked in the shadows - two themes that are set to continue well into next year. At the beginning of the season when Williams joined the Sydney Roosters after almost five seasons out of the game, there were plenty of pundits happy to say they didn't want him back and just as many lining up to say he couldn't cut it any more. Those doubters were emphatically silenced as Williams got better and better as the season wore on, spearheading the Roosters to the NRL premiership and New Zealand to the World Cup final. Now the question is ... what more can he do in 2014, in what will likely be his final season in the NRL? SBW was on the couch at home watching on though as Queensland secured an unprecedented eighth successive State of Origin series win. Things went well for NSW early as they went 1-0 up in Sydney but in a recurri ...

The guys over at Undisputed Sports have compiled a list of the most improved players in 2013. Do you agree or disagree with the list? To be included in this list, the player must have already played 20 first grade games before this season. Jake Friend Under the tutelage of new Rooster coach Trent Robinson, Jake Friend has taken his game to a whole new level. His running out of dummy half is up there with the best and he has developed a very effective short kicking game. Friend has been a crucial part of the Roosters season and is being hailed as the next Australian and Queensland hooker when Cameron Smith retires. While his attacking game hits new heights he is maintaining a high work rate in defence with an average of 37 tackles a game. Trent Robinson has worked wonders on Friend who still manages to shine in a team containing stars such as James Maloney and Sonny Bill Williams. Dean Whare The young former Sea Eagle was bought by Penrith to play fullback and started off the season in that no1 jersey. Des ...

Rugby League World Cup 2013: Sonny Bill Williams determined to rule the world again
Sydney Roosters skipper Anthony Minichiello says a clean six-week break from football will ensure the tricolours' World Cup-weary stars will be primed to defend their NRL title when season 2014 kicks off. The premiers fielded 16 players at the World Cup in Britain, more than any other club, with four - Sonny Bill Williams, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Frank Paul Nu'uausala - all named in the Kiwis' team for Sunday morning's (AEDT) final against Australia. With the Roosters to face Wigan in the World Club Challenge on February 22 at Allianz Stadium and the NRL Nines to be staged in Auckland the week before, there are fears the Roosters' campaign for back-to-back titles could hit a snag due to player burnout. But Minichiello, who has returned from playing for Italy in the international showpiece, is confident fatigue won't be a problem. "It's important to get away from football and freshen up, not just physically but mentally as well," Minichiello told AAP. "And that's what we will look ...

Getting up early at 4am to watch the Rugby League World Cup New Zealand vs Samoa expecting NZ to have a big score but Samoa made a big come back I'm the 2nd half scoring 4 tries. He're comes super hero running for try only to make a boo boo. Sonny Bill Williams who doesn't want to play for NZ then change his mind before the team leaves for England. He runs for the try left it too long to touch the most needed try only to find his foot outside the try line.No try Sonny Bill Williams your most embarrassing moment in your very outstanding record of play. The poor young guy from Melbourne Storm who was dropped to give way for you will be laughing. Player of the day I pick Manu Vatuvei of the New Zealand Warriors who went on a scoring spree. New Zealand wins but defense was poor. Need a big improvement to beat England and Australia.

Russell Fairfax reckons two things stand out when he compares modern day great Sonny Bill Williams to his Roosters' premiership-winning teammate from the 1970s Artie Beetson. Firstly, Big Artie wobbled in contrast to the streamlined figure of supreme athlete SBW. But more importantly in the context of grand final week, Fairfax believes the Roosters' don't give Williams the support play that Beetson was afforded by those outside him in yesteryear. Fairfax rates Williams as the club's best ball-player since Beetson, but says the Roosters can utilise the dual international better in Sunday's grand final against Manly at ANZ Stadium. Williams has been a weapon for the Roosters on the right and through the middle, but Fairfax says he can do more. The former Roosters fullback and coach said Beetson was always given an array of options when he ran the football, and he believes Williams' talents deserve the same treatment. "He needs more runners, he's only ever got the one option," Fairfax said. "With Beetson you ...
Roosters were the team that were supposed to be the under achievers this year.

I'd like to think one player is not a team without the rest of the team. 1 Anthony Minichiello Mini your a true champion enough said 2 Daniel Tupou big strong and fast 3 Michael Jennings your a magician the opposition have no idea what your about to do 4 Shaun Kenny-Dowall strong and not ...
PUNTERS: GI TO SNARE DALLY M Greg Inglis was the $4.50 favourite and best backed player with online bookmaker to win the 2013 Dally M medal when betting closed and voting went behind closed doors. Inglis had attracted double the money to the next best backed player, which was Melbourne’s Cooper Cronk – the Storm halfback was on the second line of betting at $6.00. Rounding out the top five in betting was Jarrod Mullen ($8.00), Daly Cherry-Evans and John Sutton (both $9.00). Other stars like Jonathan Thurston, Todd Carney and Sonny Bill Williams had all attracted solid punter support but had drifted out to $12, $17 and $26 respectively. “GI trailed Cooper Cronk by a single vote when it went behind closed doors but punters felt he was well ahead of the pack. Did he do enough in the second half of the season to surpass Cronk? You could mount a case for yes and no,”’s Ben Hawes said. is already open on the 2014 Dally M winner market, with Inglis sha ...

Sonny Bill Williams could return to the Chiefs as early as next year, says coach Dave Rennie. The Chiefs are holding open a midfield spot for the 2014 season, with Williams - currently playing in the NRL for the Sydney Roosters - in mind, and he is considered almost a certainty to return to Hamilton for the World Cup year of 2015. "At this stage we haven't filled up our midfield roster so if he was available we'd certainly jump at that opportunity," Rennie said of next season. The defending champion Chiefs, second on the table with the chance to go to first if they beat the Hurricanes in Hamilton tomorrow night, have had a mix-and-match look to their midfield this season. Richard Kahui's shoulder injury and looming departure for Japan - he is set to formally sign a contract with Toshiba this week after getting the all-clear on his problem joint - has meant Tim Nanai-Williams, Bundee Aki, Andrew Horrell and Charlie Ngatai have been swapped around the second-five and centre positions. None, apart from Ngata ...

SALARY CAP PREVENTS ANOTHER PLAYER OUTSIDE THE TOP 25 FROM PLAYING The NRL's second-tier salary cap has robbed another young player of a likely debut after the Roosters were told they were unable to use Kane Evans on Friday night. With the uncertainty surrounding Sonny Bill Williams because of a glute strain, the Roosters had applied to the NRL to use the uncapped Evans from the interchange bench in a reworked side. Instead, the club were told by the NRL that Evans could not play and they had to use Tinirau Arona instead. Both Arona and Evans warmed up on Friday night, but for Evans it was only to give him a taste of first-grade experience. Arona played his only top grade game this year in round one. With Williams in doubt, James Maloney, Michael Jennings and Mitchell Pearce on Origin duty and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves suspended, the Roosters' depth was tested. The Roosters chief operating officer of football, Brian Canavan, called for immediate change. ''We made the application and through the interpretati ...
Sonny Bill Williams enjoyed a triumphant return to the his old Canterbury kennel, as his Sydney Roosters survived a late surge to score a 20-18 NRL win on Friday night.
Good evening everybody, and thank god it's the weekend, albeit a little cold and rainy. NRL Friday Night Football kicks off at ANZ Stadium shortly with the Canterbury Bulldogs taking in the Sydney Roosters in this Origin-affected Round 15. Sonny Bill Williams returns to the place he used to call home before his controversial departure, and there could be a pocket of Bulldogs supporters that may yet of forgiven him 5 years later. Should be a cracking match, despite both teams having players out due to Origin representation. All this, as well as extended coverage of Day Four of Royal Ascot Carnival, headlined by the Coronation Stakes...
Late changes: The Roosters' halfback tonight is... Sonny Bill Williams. Mortimer moves to five-eighth, Aubusson in the centres, Guerra back row. Graham starts for the Bulldogs, Kasiano on the bench. Roosters say SBW still needs to get through the pre-game warm-up.
