The ego has landed

The Total Flanker Selfish Bastard of the Week Award (whaddya mean you’ve never heard of it?) goes this week to New Zealand’s Sonny Bill Williams.

Williams graciously decided this week that he would help out his “brothers” by declaring his availability to play for New Zealand in the forthcoming Rugby League World Cup.

No problem there, you would think, if it were not for the fact that he announced his decision once the squad had already been selected, Sonny Bill having previously publicly declared his unavailability.

Already a rugby union World Cup winner with the All Blacks and currently New Zealand’s heavyweight boxing champion, there’s no doubt that Williams is a prodigiously talented athlete, but I doubt that 21 year old Tohu Harris, unceremoniously dumped from the NZ squad within 24 hours of celebrating his call up, is feeling too much brotherly love for Sonny Bill right now.
