NRL 2020: Sonny Bill Williams out of quarantine, into Sydney Roosters COVID-19 bubble

Cross-code superstar Sonny Bill Williams is out of quarantine in New South Wales and has joined his new Sydney Roosters teammates.

Williams and his family were permitted to leave mandatory quarantine on Friday morning, and Fox Sports reports the 35-year-old arrived into the Roosters bubble a few hours later.

Williams must undergo several biosecurity protocols, before being cleared to play in the former All Blacks' third NRL stint.

Williams burst onto the rugby league scene in 2004 as a teenager with Canterbury Bulldogs, but controversially left the club in 2008 to take up a lucrative deal with French rugby club Toulon.

Following World Cup success with the All Blacks in 2011, Williams returned to the 13-man code for a two-year stint at the Roosters, where he won a premiership alongside current Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.

Another Rugby World Cup win followed in 2015 and a third unsuccessful campaign last year, before Williams signed with Super League club Toronto Wolfpack.

The Canadian club withdrew from the COVID-19 effected Super League season last month, setting the wheels in motion for Williams' return to the Roosters.

His arrival at the two-time defending champions is a major boost, with the club currently experiencing a heavy injury toll.

The Roosters have more than AU$4 million in talent sitting on the sidelines, including stars Luke Keary, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Brett Morris and captain Boyd Cordner.

Coach Trent Robinson insists Williams won't make his onfield return until next month.
