Wigan today dismissed rumours that they are about to sign Sonny Bill Williams.
Wigan Chairman Maurice Lindsay said,
"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."
