SONNY BILL WILLIAMS
Sonny Bill Williams was born on 3 August 1985 (full name Sonny William Williams, nickname SBW/SUPERMAN), in Auckland, New Zealand, the son of John and Lee. He is of Samoan descent on his father's side. He grew up in the Auckland suburb of Mount Albert and attended Owairaka Primary School, Wesley Intermediate, and Mount Albert Grammar School. Though his father was an accomplished rugby league player, Williams said it was his mother who introduced him to the game. In July 2008 SBW left Australia and joined the French rugby union club Taulon, city salary cap concerns in a controversial exit.
