Williams Facing Spell Out

Williams Facing Spell Out

All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines after picking a knee injury.

Williams suffered the injury when falling awkwardly while playing for the Blues against the Stormers in Auckland two weeks ago and it has now been revealed minor arthroscopy surgery.

William will undergo the procedure on Friday, and although the Rugby World Cup is some way off, he needs to make a full recovery to ensure he is ready for the Japan showpiece.

Blues coach Leon MacDonald says Williams is determined to make the All Blacks squad this year and would be working hard to keep that as his goal. “He’s pretty driven to make sure he recovers well from this injury and gets back on the field,” he said.

Meanwhile, the absence of Williams is also a blow for the Blues. “We’ll miss him on the field obviously but he’s still contributing in the meeting rooms where he can,” MacDonald added.
