Williams says he make a return to the NRL once his time in rugby union is over.
Sydney Roosters superstar Sonny Bill Williams has hinted that he may return to the NRL once his two-year stint in rugby union is up.
The cross-code international remains sidelined with an injured thumb but is expected to be fit in time for finals as the Roosters shoot for back-to-back titles.
The 29-year-old said all his focus was going into the Roosters’ premiership hopes this season, but said there was a strong possibility of a return to the NRL after his two years in New Zealand are over.
“Last year when I came back to the game I didn’t think I’d be staying for two years or winning the competition,” Williams said at the launch of the NRL’s Pacific Strategy.
“So anythings possible.
“Of course there’s always a chance, but I’m 29 now. The missus says I’m getting older and older. I’m not too sure how long I’ll be running around for.
“But I can assure you that no matter how long I’m running around I’ll be giving 120 per cent… anything’s possible and it just comes down to hard work and that self belief.”
The Roosters currently sit in fourth position on the NRL ladder and face an embattled Wests Tigers outfit on Saturday night at Leichhardt Oval.
