Sonny Bill Williams is expected to reveal his plans for his sporting career tomorrow, and rumour is he could become one of the highest paid rugby players in Australia and New Zealand.
Williams was outstanding at second five-eighth for the All Blacks in their recent three Test series whitewash of Ireland, but speculation is rife that may have been his final appearance in the All Blacks jersey this year.
Williams is expected to make a formal announcement in Auckland tomorrow where it is tipped he will reveal his commitment to Japanese rugby club Panasonic Knights.
Williams has reportedly committed to a 10-game deal with the club, which is said to be worth between $800,000 and $1.7 million, the Daily Telegraph said.
The Telegraph said he stands to earn over $2 million for the year if he pursues a boxing and National Rugby League deal.
The Japan Top League season would keep Williams occupied from August 31 until late January, when his next move is tipped to be back to the 13-man code of rugby league.
The All Blacks and Waikato Chiefs midfielder has long been linked with a return to the NRL with the Sydney Roosters.
Tomorrow's announcement will put an end to months of speculation over his playing future, and is set to impact the make-up of both the New Zealand's national side, his current Super Rugby franchise the Waikato Chiefs, as well as the Roosters or any other club bidding for his signature.
Furthermore, the significance of Williams' decision will also impact upon the hopes and aspirations of other individuals in both rugby codes that may or may not find their career path stymied.
Williams is also expected to continue with his boxing career.
