'A thrilling and original sports book... a fantastic read about a remarkable athlete' Ray Warren

Big, powerful, handsome, gifted and enigmatic, Sonny Bill Williams has the ability to get fans flocking, sponsors scrambling and coaches dreaming of winning dynasties.
But 'SBW' is not like other footballers. He broke his Bulldogs contract mid-season to play rugby union for Toulon in France, leaving teammates shocked, fans enraged and the NRL threatening a life ban. Yet Sonny's star never dimmed. His legend only grew.
When Sonny Bill returned to New Zealand, he steered the Crusaders to a Super Rugby final before leading the Chiefs to their inaugural title and helping the All Blacks with the Rugby World Cup...while becoming a heavyweight boxing champion.
Then he returned to League and led the Roosters to a premiership before switching back to Union again for the All Blacks' 2015 World Cup defence. Along the way, Sonny Bill proved a modern truth - success is currency, memories are short, star power eclipses everything.
Paul Kent's Sonny Ball tells the extraordinary story of Sonny Bill Williams in an extraordinary way. It's a book as intriguing and action-packed as any grand final in any sport, anywhere.
'A superb insight into the complex, political world of Rugby League and Sonny Bill Williams, the man who changed the way it was played on and off the field' Matthew Johns
