SBW out to produce his best

New Zealand superstar Sonny Bill Williams has warned Australia that he can still get better ahead of Saturday’s Rugby League World Cup final (Match Betting – New Zealand 5/2, draw 20/1, Australia 1/3).

The Kiwi switched back to the 13-man game at the start of the year, following a spell in union in which he helped the All Blacks win the World Cup in 2011 as well as playing a leading role in the Waikato Chiefs’ first ever Super Rugby title.

One of the reasons behind his return to league was his desire to also become a world champion in both codes, having missed out on his country’s victory in 2008.

Stephen Kearney’s men (12/5 World Cup outright) have been extremely impressive so far in the World Cup and demonstrated their class as Shaun Johnson went over in the final minute to seal victory in the semi-final clash with England on Saturday.

They now meet their great rivals Australia (3/10 World Cup outright) in the final at Old Trafford and the 28-year-old believes he still has one big performance left in him before the end of the tournament.

“Have we seen the best of me yet? Hopefully not. I just go out there and try and do my thing,” he said. “For myself I have actually fallen back in love with rugby league this year. I felt like I have earned a lot of respect by the way I carried myself.

“I’ve showed that I’ve grown up a lot as a person so it would definitely top everything off if we won the World Cup.”
