Sonny Bill Williams has ended a mystery over his whereabouts. The All Black utility has Tweeted that his Nan is back home and thanked his Tweeps for all their prayers.

Williams missed all three Rugby World Cup victory parades by the All Blacks this week due to a sick relative.

He added on his Twitter page that his manager is now putting him "under the pump''.

Super Rugby squad announcements are due next week.

Williams, 26, has been linked with the Blues and the Chiefs though another offshore contract is also an option, possibly back in France.
