Sonny Bill Williams given green light


Sonny Bill Williams is set to be available for the opening fixture of the new NRL season after his contract was finally registered.

Salary cap auditor Ian Schubert had been awaiting further paperwork from the Sydney Roosters before confirming the deal but it has since been provided and  the star has been registered with the NRL team.

Roosters chief operating officer Brian Canavan said: “The Roosters have worked closely with the NRL regarding this matter and we were comfortable with the proceedings.

“We now look forward to continuing our preparations for the season opener against Souths, and getting on with what will hopefully be a memorable season of football.”

The contract went down to the wire and the 27-year-old was given the green light only hours before the deadline which would have seen him miss the Roosters’ opening fixture with the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Thursday.
