As many as he wants. Issue is that how much of an impact will he make? Argyle knows him, as do the 500 or so Toronto Season Ticket holders, but the rest of north America won't give a to55.

Anyone remember that bloke who went to play for the 49's a while back.......think he may have been an EEL?

I'm looking forward to the show pony visiting Featherstone in the 2nd year of his 3 year deal :CRAZY:

SBW is the ultimate professional.

Any idiots saying otherwise have never played rugby above under 9 level.

I am frankly sick and tired of jealous people misrepresenting the Sonny Bill Williams deal. It is $9 million over two years not three. SBW would not be signing for unders, as you have suggested. He is a true professional and will make Canada a proud rugby league nation.

Sonny Bill Wiliams is now 34.

Steven Menzies played until he was almost 40 for the Catalans, and he was still a star of Super League at that time.

Who are you his agent? what does it matter how long he's signed for or how much he'd be stealing in wages, more amused than jealous really throwing that sort of money on an aging has been, $9million would get you at least 3 top Aussies who would really make a difference to the side and not just a gimmick signing, what I noticed most about him against England last week was his non contribution to the game when he finally got on the field.

Apologies in advance for any literary errors.

SBW is an absolute class player in both codes and not too many have achieved that accolade in recent years.
It would be a major coup for Toronto to have him on their books and any RL fan that wouldn't want to see the guy play, frankly, isn't a RL fan.

However, the contract that is being quoted is eye watering and way over the odds for any player but, apart from Toronto having to find his wages every month, this is win/win.

As for the talk of Toronto playing Fev :lol: :lol:

It doesn't look like they will be scrapping to avoid the wooden spoon but, their cap spend will make interesting reading - maybe the cap doesn't apply over there :wink:

SBW was never worth that at his peak (no RL has been relative to the wealth of the game) and he certainly isn't now.
