New Zealand has selected Sonny Bill Williams in a preliminary 49-man squad for this year's rugby league World Cup. It says he has been named pending court proceedings in Sydney. The optimistic decision comes after Williams revealed his ambitions to play for the All Blacks. The National Rugby League will continue court action against Williams today, seeking an injunction to stop him from playing rugby union in breach of his five-year contract with the Bulldogs. Williams is planning to make his debut for French rugby side Toulon tomorrow morning Australian time.
