Wigan deny any contact with Sonny
Bill Williams

Wigan today dismissed rumours that they are about to sign Sonny Bill Williams.

Wigan Chairman Maurice Lindsay said,

"Lots of people, strangely including Chief Executives of other Super League clubs, are suggesting that we are about to sign Sonny Bill Williams. This is simply not true."

Lindsay continued,

"This has no doubt arisen because of the possibility that our Captain, Andrew Farrell, might be joining Rugby Union. That situation is still not decided and we are certainly not trying to anticipate matters by prematurely negotiating a very expensive contract with Sonny Bill Williams. We do not comment on what other clubs might be doing even if they try to suggest what we may or may not be doing."
