All Blacks centre Sonny Bill Williams is "definitely" returning to rugby league, according to reports.
Former Australian rugby league international Matty Johns told Sydney's Triple M radio station that he will "definitely" sign for the Sydney Roosters. Johns said: "From what I hear 100 per cent he'll be at the Roosters, there are only the details about his boxing career to sort out."
And the news has received backing from former player Mark Geyer who has admitted that he would love to see Williams back in rugby league - but the 26-year-old should apologise first for his unceremonious exit from the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2008.
Williams has a one-year contract with the Chiefs for the 2012 Super Rugby season but he has remained non-committal over his future. Rooster's chief executive Steve Noyce has refused to comment on the speculation.
