All Blacks latest – SBW set to start

Keo.co.za brings you news from the All Blacks’ camp.

SBW set to start – All Blacks assistant coach Wayne Smith says that Sonny Bill Williams will partner Richard Kahui in midfield when the New Zealanders face South Africa on Saturday.

‘Yes, I think the time is right for Sonny Bill to come into the starting line-up. He especially played well on last year’s tour against England and Scotland,’ Smith said.

‘After that we again picked him in the starting team against Wales, because we told the players beforehand that they will be rewarded if they play the best in their positions.’

The All Blacks will announce their team on Thursday.
