SBW visits team Fiji as stars celebrate all over

Former All Black outside centre Sonny Bill Williams could not contain his excitement and celebrated with the Flying Fijians in the changing rooms at Stade de Geoffroy-Guichard after their win against Australia.


Williams tweeted as well as shared post-match celebration images with Fijian players as he went personally to congratulate them after their 22-15 win.

“You guys already know I’m a big fan of the Fiji boys, so I snuck in post-game to give my congrats to the boys after the historic win…keep making the islands proud brothers,” Williams tweeted.


Sentiments were shared across the board with a number of former greats from England, Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji to count also showing their appreciation.

2015 RWC winner and All Blacks winger Israel Dagg was one of a few.
