Sonny Bill Williams is a step closer to making his first appearance for the New Zealand Sevens after being included in an extended squad for next weekend’s HSBC World Series stop in Wellington.
Williams has been training with Gordon Tietjens’ extended squad in recent times and has now been included in a 22-man squad which will assemble in Auckland on Thursday.
Tietjens will then name his final 12-man outfit for the Westpac Stadium leg next Monday.
Williams will be desperate to make his debut next weekend having missed out on the two previous tournaments in Dubai and Cape Town. The code-hopper has committed himself to the shorter format of the game in a bid to earn a place at the Rio di Janeiro Olympics.
