New Zealand to lose key player after 2019 RWC?

All Blacks and Super Rugby side Blues inside center Sonny Bill Williams, has hinted that this year could be his last stay in New Zealand.

Williams who is contracted to New Zealand Rugby and the Blues until the end of the 2019 World Cup, but following several injury setbacks in recent months he admitted that he might not sign an extension beyond this year.

The two time RWC holder, however, said that he was now back at full fitness and was hoping to get through 2019 injury free and he might look to return to rugby league or seek out a coaching career at the end of his contract.

“For the last two years I’ve been so methodical with my planning and preparation,” he said.
“Every off-season: ‘A, B, C, D and I’m going to get to E’. But the last two years have been so injury ravaged I’ve come to understand that I have a plan but that God is the best planner. I put my faith in God and work hard and try to be the best person – husband, father, teammate – that I can be.
“It starts here with the Blues. I want us to have a successful year. I want the boys to succeed.”
