They may be All Blacks team-mates but when it comes to Super Rugby, Sonny Bill Williams certainly wasn’t holding back against his New Zealand counterpart Conrad Smith last Saturday.
With Chiefs facing Hurricanes on Saturday in round 18, Williams absolutely smashed his team-mate on the 40-minute mark.
The commissioner for foul play incidents offers warnings for incidents which are very close to being a sending off but ‘do not meet the red card threshold for citings’, according to sport24.
