At the beginning of their first season in the Super League, Toronto Wolfpack is looking for All Blacks to make the jump.
Sam Phillips of the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the club had offered a two-year $ 9 million bid for New Zealand's second-place Sonny Bill Williams.
If it was completed, the deal would be the biggest deal in the history of the league.
The 34-year-old Williams plays cross-code, which means he can compete in both the rugby league and the rugby league.
The club's football director, Brian Noble, attracted the attention of the player.
“Who wouldn't want to sign it? Nob Noble, the BBC's pirate, said the BBC5 rugby league podcast. “The information is that he will leave all Blacks. If he leaves all Blacks, I'm sure there are two or three NRL clubs to secure his services. ”
All Blacks was eliminated by England in the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup, but still won third place against Wales on Friday.
Native of Auckland, Williams is one of 20 players who won more than one World Cup in 2011 and 2015.
Williams spent seven years in the National Rugby League with the Canterbury Bulldogs (2004 – 2008) and the Sydney Roosters (2013 – 2014).
