Sonny Bill Williams has re-affirmed his verbal commitment to the Sydney Roosters, after speaking to following a meeting with Roosters chairman Nick Politis on Friday.

Williams confirmed to Fox Sports he will likely return to live in Sydney once his playing career is up in rugby union, but suggested he could try to prolong his career once moving to Sydney, which would work out perfectly considering his agreement with Easts.

Williams has committed to returning to the Tricolours if he does play in the NRL once again, and he touched on that on Friday afternoon.

“Me coming back (to the Roosters) was just a handshake deal with him that’s how close we are, and you can’t just make those memories and forget people,” Williams told

“But mate I’m 33, I’m a realist, I’ll be 34 at the end of next year. It’s about being where my feet are. If that means at the end of the season it’s all finished my sporting career is done and dusted then it’s humbling, thank God, I’ll be grateful.

“But if there are opportunities and some offers come through then I’ll sit down with my wife and see what’s best for me, her and the kids.

“I think eventually we’ll end up living in Sydney, but there’s a possibility the sporting career could be done and dusted by the end of next year or there’s a possibility I could try and hang on for a little bit more.”

Williams also spoke about whether he could compete physically in the NRL in the future, and he’s got no doubts about that, if he chooses to play on.

“I’ve been Muslim so long it’s allowed me to look after my body, keep my body in really good nick and I could choose to play on, but I could choose not to,” Williams added.

“I know it sounds like I’m sitting on the fence but that’s my mindset, I’m just trying to live day to day.”


  1. STD-1970/ :Nero/Reg – & whoever else:: “you are a single mother with at least two children) against you.”

    ZT, can we please put an end to this toxic garbage?

    Am I supposed to be ashamed of my THREE children because I choose to post on this website???

    I don’t have 3 children “against” me! I hsve children WITH me!!!


    “a single mother with at least two children against you”

    “against” me???

    How dare you! You are a colossal fail & all your sycophants should hold their heads in shame for even remotely suggesting I should be ashamed of my children.

    You reckon I got personal???

    I NEVER “attacked” your family. All I did was ask you to reconsider your antiquated pathetic views being a husband & dad of a daughter.

    You go carrying on all very Trumpian that I “attacked” your family.

    I never did.

    But you still carried on. Trying to convince your moronic fan club that I did so they’d crucify me.

    You have serious problems, you really do. Is this a PERSONAL attack? You bet it is.

    How dare you!

    “at least 2 kids.”

    You are a miserable human being, you really are.

    I have children “against” me – like a blot against my name???!!!

    My kids would thrash you in a heartbeat in what you call banter. They’d wipe the floor with you with ACTUAL witt….while you busily quote moronic lines from pathetically dated US sit—coms.

    ZT, ya know???

    This is just too much.


    • Oh, I should explain why I posted this here, STD_1970/ Nero/ Reg.

      You have so often criticised me for posting late in an article release…like I was somehow being manipulative. Maybe I was busy???!!!

      Maybe I don’t hang on every damn line like you always have…until you’ve been banned.

      I wasn’t/ never have been quite the devotee you’ve always been. My apologies.

      So, here is my comment on a current article so you can’t call me out on my tardiness.

      You are an absolute miserable human being &, after those comments you posted to me tonight, I’m truly hoping your fan club realise your innate nastiness.

      You are not here to talk footy. You are here to crucify posters you don’t deem fit for your fan club & to appease those you think are on “your side.”

      What absolute fascist trailer trash you are..

      Must be killing you…the current state of affairs in the US…,Your days around here are numbered…yet again.

      Until next time, Nero.

      Truly, how dare you.

        • And if she posted this about your wife and daughter mate…

          danielle November 28, 2018 at 11:09 pm
          You apparently have a wife & a daughter….
          I’m presuming your wife & daughter are thoroughly plucked.

          danielle November 30, 2018 at 12:48 am
          Now, let’s get back to those treasured women in your life…
          Have they spent all night in the bathroom plucking themselves to your satisfaction?

          What would be your reaction? Just ignore it and let her KEEP doing it, while she is protected as a ZT employee?

        • Grow up? Have you READ your “mates” posts lately? Or do you approve of personal attacks against family, women and 8-year-old little girls?

          You told me once to go and “take a LONG sleep, a PERMANENT one” (i.e. “I wish you would die!”) remember? Is THAT YOUR idea of maturity?

          Don’t get involved in this kitty cat or you will be changing your name to Panthers19 much sooner than you had planned.

        • Actually I have, Reg. You have attacked Danielle repeatedly, and she is defending herself. You can dished it, however, you can not cop it when the favour is returned. By the way, this has always been my user name. As for t he rest, what ever.

        • Danielle is far from innocent in all of this Panthers. Both her and Reg have some blame in all of it. How about instead of getting involved and stirring things up even further you either encourage them to both stop or stay out of it all together. Myself, I would like to see it all end as I have had enough of the constant back and forth between the two of them that has nothing to do with rugby league and gets way too personal.

      • Blessed are the cheese makers sorry that should read peace makers. Sometimes things are read out in a different tone of voice in ones own mind and sometimes it sounds different when one reads it in anger so the humor can be easily lost. Maybe a bit of steering banter from both of you guys has been misinterpreted and out of context. Sometimes these things blow right out of proportion and it becomes personal.

        I suggest you both Danielle and Reg should just say sorry to each other, and start a fresh. Life’s to short to hold grudges and fight. 🕊🕊🕊✌✌✌✌✌☮☮☮☮☮ They came to snuff the Rooster once but life goes on.🐔🐓🐔🐓☮✌🕊

        • Who’s Panthers 18 and what did Reg do to you❓❓❓❓❓❓❓❓

          Screamingeagles the battle of the birds 🐓🦅 will be settled in round 2 next season. If you have something better to do that weekend then it might be a good idea to do it. That way you just might save youself watching 80 mins of pain.💪👴✋.

        • Considering that you made your comment after mine, and with no mention of names, I assumed your comment was directed at me.

        • If anyone challenged your kids’ existence as an insult to your own, I’m sure you’d respond exactly the same.

          But, seeing as you requested this:

          I’m so sorry, Reg, for making the same inquiries about the state of your wife & daughter’s “front yard” after you did mine.

          Happy now, Woody?

          @panthers18 – thnx. Much appreciated 🙂

      • Trumpian? Well, every time I “build a wall” you find a way through. You must be tunnelling under like a Mex!can m0le rat! (aka Sand Puppy). 😂😂😂

    • @ “ghostie”

      “My kids would thrash you in a heartbeat in what you call banter. They’d wipe the floor with you with ACTUAL witt….”

      Firstly, if you truly had any wit or intelligence you would know that it is “wit” not “witt”. Which university did you claim to graduate from again? 😂😂😂

      Secondly, not only did you attack MY 8-year-old daughter (THREE TIMES!) but now you want to send in your own children to fight YOUR battles? Well, THAT says it all. I didn’t attack your kids but reminded you I had not even mentioned them at ALL until reminding you how you have severely overstepped the mark. I won’t be mentioning them further but it is pretty sad that you want to send them into battle for you.

      “I NEVER “attacked” your family.”

      Now, let’s get back to those treasured women in your life…
      Have they spent all night in the bathroom plucking themselves to your satisfaction?

      “suggesting I should be ashamed of my children”

      Have I EVER done that? No! So don’t complain to me about the words posted by others. I am not responsible for their words and they are not responsible for mine.

      “What absolute fascist trailer trash you are”

      Careful, you are projecting again. Don’t drag me into your psychosis!

      You are going to do it again, aren’t you? Burn this site to the ground just like you did before with a flood of these vulgar puerile outbursts.

      Bottom line… I keep saying LEAVE ME ALONE and DON’T POST TO ME OR ABOUT ME OR MY FAMILY, but you can’t respect that. So WHY is it so hard to stick to your own side of the fence and post without referencing me? It is really THAT simple!

  2. Hypocrite Reg.
    Supports holmsey and his personal and slanderous comments about players and their families and then has a big cry when he thinks someone’s done it to him.
    🙄😏 suck it up princess.

    • Before we get to business, let’s clear up some BS you are currently spreading about me…

      Panthers3 December 2, 2018 at 12:31 pm
      “Supports holmsey and his personal and slanderous comments about players and their families ”

      Panthers3 December 1, 2018 at 11:29 am
      with you support for holmsey after what he has said about players families in the past.

      What are you talking about clown? Are you on crack? Post the link and date and time of this supposed quote where I supported Holmsey. I have never supported slanderous comments about ANYONE’s family. Neither can I ever remember supporting Holmsey. In our last exchange where I proved his hero DCE had confessed to not giving 100% despite being paid $1.2 mill a season he burst into tears and made a moving final farewell to ZT. You are so full of crap you clown. So prove your accusation you dumb a$$. I’ll be waiting.

    • Princess? Are you sure about that? At least I don’t hide and wait for a forum that YOU aren’t posting on to take a swipe at you. I face you head on. Like when I threw down the gauntlet when you shot your mouth off on the “Kalyn Ponga $2 mill” story.

      Panthers3 December 1, 2018 at 11:29 am
      How about these 2 drama queens ??
      😆😆 Reg and Penso

      Reg Reagan December 1, 2018 at 5:08 pm
      Have the balls to reveal who you really are instead of hiding your tribal allegiance…
      I don’t have a Christmas piñata for this year. If you want to volunteer for the position by siding with a known tr0ll who has attacked my wife and 8-year-old daughter I will be more than happy to make it my mission to send you to the “tr0ll graveyard” like so many other wannabe big mouths before you. Your call.

      And don’t think I didn’t notice that the “Sigourney Weaver” to your “Rick Moranis” in your “Ghostbuster-esque” tag team performance didn’t do EXACTLY the same thing instead of posting under the actual comment she is addressing here.

      OK, Rick with the silent “P”, thank you for volunteering to be my Christmas piñata for 2018. I broke my K-E-F-E piñata last year but it was empty inside, not unlike you in that respect. This year though I suspect you have ruffled the feathers of a few angry seagulls that might try to crack you open looking for chips. We will have to see who gets there first!

  3. One more swan song for Sony Will Billions would be something special to behold from all Rooster fans. He is a fitness fanatic so his body will handle the rough house riggers of League in the second row after playing in the backs in Union. He like Cronk this season was such a massive influence on the rest of the Roosters team that his presence rubs off on all and they both inspired the Roosters to premierships. They are both legends already in Roosters folklore and left their mark forever in Roosters History for the things they have done. Come home Sony, we would love for you to end your career at the Chooks💪👴👍👍👍👍👍

  4. Here’s a thought, how about both Reg and Danielle move on. I have tried to stay out of this for some time but enough is enough.

    Danielle, don’t attempt to portray any innocence in this situation, if there is one true thing that Reg keeps mentioning it is that at least 90% of your comments are in response to him, calling him out on silly spelling mistakes or the like, it is extremely rare that you post anything footy related or even something that doesn’t reference Reg. You have mentioned his family, and whether or not you consider it an attack on them, that is not on in any case. Family is off limits. How about commenting on footy instead, this is an NRL based site after all.

    Reg, I have told you before to just let it go. Not only when she replies to your comments, but stop referencing her in other comments. I know there is history there too, but it really isn’t worth it is it? There is no need to get personal with anyone, retaliation, or starting it. We get along mate, but enough is enough, keep to the footy and the fun banter hey?

    I don’t know about other posters on here, but I am sick of coming on here and seeing endless back and forth between you two. You have both gone way over the line in your comments to each other at time, so instead of playing the who started it game, how about both of you just decide to end it and move on.

    • I’m game eels47. Let’s see WHO breaks the truce first… AGAIN! Remember when we both went to another site along with about half a dozen others from here as well? Who followed who? And who continued the attacks without provocation at ANOTHER SITE? I can’t stand tr0lls or people who start sh!t but can’t back it up. Either from behind a keyboard or face to face.

      People can have a difference of opinion but there is no need for personal attacks, particularly referencing family.

  5. Like sands through the hourglass…….so are the days of our lives ( cue violin music )
    This is a rugby league forum not a Dr Phil episode.
    Take your trash elsewhere.
