Sonny Bill Williams makes losing Super League debut with Toronto Wolfpack

Sonny Bill Williams makes losing Super League debut with Toronto Wolfpack”

They wanted to play me for 20 or 30 minutes, but I felt really good and it was a great atmosphere.

Toronto made a good start when France worldwide Hakim Miloudi threaded a kick through the Castleford defence for winger Liam Kay to score the opening try after just three minutes.

"I just speak my truth - sometimes I get it wrong but in this instance I definitely know I'm not".

"It's a long season".

"The magic will come if I'm doing the little things well, the little one percenters, pushing up, support play, working back third man, all that stuff, kick chase".

Williams knocked on with his first touch and repeated the error shortly afterwards in a clumsy re-introduction into the code.

"When it comes to that situation of being able to speak up as sportsman, I'm nearly embarrassed to say that I don't speak up enough". "We have been saying since the first day that this will take some time, a certain change".

'When he got his second wind he got through some tackles, got through some carries.

"They (crowd) get excited by a certain aspect of life don't they, acertain aspect of life that is usually on the negative side".

"But he got some game-time under his belt which is valuable for him as hehasn't played rugby league for five years".

"I could be talking about how proud I am and all that type of thing that the players never give in, you could see there was some energy there at the back end of the game", said Wolfpack coach Brian McDermott.

"I've got something to work on, a good base". "He passed the ball a lot".

'Obviously he's an offload threat but he hasn't played rugby league for five years so it will take him time to bed in. He'll bed in and he'll be great'.

Tries from Greg Eden, Michael Shenton, Peter Mata'utia, Grant Millington and Adam Milner helped Castleford to victory but most eyes were on Sonny Bill Williams's arrival. In many respects, I'm really pleased with how that panned out today.

The Wolfpack made the flawless start in the first match of Sunday's double-header in Leeds when Liam Kay finished off an early attack to put them ahead with an unconverted try with barely three minutes gone.

"We got outmuscled in the middle and if you don't win those confrontations then the rest is an uphill battle".

'We've learnt some really good lessons today.

Toronto will play Castleford as part of Super League's first double header at Leeds' Emerald Headingley Stadium. So we can't be too long in that'.
