Biography

Success tends to follow Sonny. He won an NRL grand final with the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs while still a teenager, he became the youngest Test forward ever for the Kiwis, he won a Super XV rugby union title with the Waikato Chiefs and won a rugby union World Cup with the All Blacks. In the off-season he boxes, where he has held New Zealand heavyweight titles. There have been stints playing rugby union in France and Japan also.

Sonny’s return to the NRL this year at the Sydney Roosters comes four seasons after leaving the Bulldogs in controversial circumstances. His impact on the Roosters has been dramatic, after they finished 13th last season.

With the ability to play second row, centre or lock, Sonny last played for the Kiwis in the ANZAC Test of 2008. This will be his first World Cup. He made his Kiwis debut in 2004 aged 18 years 264 days.
