Toronto star Sonny Bill Williams will go undergo knee surgery but will not miss a Super League game.
The dual-code New Zealand international missed the Wolfpack’s 18-0 win over Huddersfield in the Challenge Cup last week with a knee injury he is thought to have carried in to the season.
Toronto have confirmed that Williams has been booked in for surgery but with all rugby league wiped out for the next three weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic, Williams may not miss any fixtures.
The club tweeted: “Sonny Bill Williams is scheduled to undergo an operation on his knee.
“He is expected to recover in three weeks.”

The Wolfpack are next due in action in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup on the weekend of April 4-5, and are scheduled to play their first Super League game in Canada on April 11 when Hull FC visit Lamport Stadium.
