SBW dominated coverage of the Roosters round one game.
The first round of the 2013 NRL season kicked off with the much anticipated derby match between the Sydney Roosters and the South Sydney Rabboths.
You would be forgiven, however, if you had thought the ‘match’ coverage was a 2-hour long feature on Sonny Bill Williams.
In between long shots of Williams watching on expectantly from Roosters bench, or the montage that was SBW’s warm-up before running onto the field, viewers were lucky to catch some glimpses of the actual match.
Williams lived up to some of the hype surrounding his return, scoring a try in the second half. Unfortunately the try was a lone highlight for Roosters fan as the Rabbitohs cruised to an easy win.
