Wolfpack: Williams and Ownership Stake

wolfpack: The Wolfpack confirmed Thursday that the 34-year-old Williams, a star in both of rugby's codes, has signed a two-year contract, according to CTV. The deal is worth a total of 9 million, with Williams getting an ownership stake, according to a source granted anonymity because they were not in a position to publicly divulge the information. Now the transatlantic rugby league team is opening the vault in the hope that All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams will put it on the worldwide map as the Wolfpack prepare for their step up into England's top-tier Super League come February. Having someone of his talent join the Wolfpack will greatly raise the profile of the club, and also help move the game forward globally, Bob Hunter, the Wolfpack chairman and CEO, said in a statement. The Wolfpack may not be finished yet. Sonny is a phenomenal athlete and we believe he is rugby's LeBron James and his addition to our league is comparable to when David Beckham joined L.A. Galaxy.
