‘Just a game’: Sonny Bill Williams happy to take a pay cut for the good of rugby league

Two-time NRL premiership-winner and Toronto Wolfpack superstar Sonny Bill Williams says he would be happy to take a pay cut to help rugby league.

“100 per cent, I would be that way inclined,” Williams told the UK’s Sky Sports News when asked about a pay cut.

“When it comes to taking pay cuts, to keep the game afloat, it would be crazy not to think that’s going to occur, especially with the way things are happening in the sporting world.

“I consider myself in a privileged position and [I am] taking a step back and understanding that sport is just a game and there are things in life that are more important.

“But in terms of sport, it is crazy to think some organisations might not make it through.”

Williams signed a two-year worth $10 million with the Wolfpack making it the biggest contract in either rugby code.
