Sonny Bill Williams has told Toronto fans to stick by his side after back-to-back defeats in Super League.

The Wolfpack suffered consecutive defeats for the first time in their history, having lost to Castleford and Salford in the opening fixtures in their maiden Super League season.

He said: “I think as a team we’re definitely improving, which is the main thing.

“Last week there was a lot of what you could say were mistakes but we looked at it as learnings.

“We went out there and fixed a lot of wrongs but still fell short, just in those big moments the lads will agree we didn’t quite nail it. It was a massive improvement but there’s always some more learnings to do.

“Stay with us because, although we haven’t got the results in the last two weeks, we are building.

“I’ve been part of a lot of franchises and a lot of clubs and the chemistry within this team is right up there so we’ll keep working hard and hopefully we start stringing some wins together.”

Williams will head back to his native New Zealand this week for the birth of his fourth child, having been given pre-arranged leave by the Wolfpack.
