After another boxing debacle, Sonny Bill will finally be back to being Sonny Bill on Saturday

Super Rugby is back and so is SBW.

SONNY BILL WILLIAMS had another foray into boxing last month as he won his seventh fight but it left many people underwhelmed. Rugby fans want to see Williams throwing audacious side-door offloads rather than matching up with journeymen boxers.

If you didn’t see the fight, here are the highlights.

But Super Rugby returns for 2015 tomorrow and Sonny Bill Williams is right back into the Chiefs side at inside centre for their opener against the Blues. The last time Williams played Super Rugby it was pretty special so it is definitely worth tuning in this weekend.

SBW isn’t the only returning legend this weekend either. After taking about 10 sabbaticals over the last few seasons Dan Carter will start for the Crusaders tomorrow morning against the Melbourne Rebels.

It would be great to see DC play himself into a bit of form this season because he deserves to be part of another World Cup squad after his injury in 2011.
