Overnight, the All Blacks clinched a victory over the Wallabies in the Rugby World Cup, but one of the most memorable moments came after the game wrapped up, when Sonny Bill Williams gave his winners medal away to a young fan.
“Just before he came to give me a hug he got smoked by one of the security guards and I felt pretty sorry for him you know. If that was a younger brother or cousin I would have given the security guard a hiding you know. But I just picked the kid up and took him back to his old lady and tried to make the night more memorable for him. Better (for the medal) to be hanging around his neck than mine.”
