Chiefs coach says courting of SBW becoming a distraction

The Chiefs rugby coach says his All Black Sonny Bill Williams is currently being courted with big money offers from overseas.

Williams is on a one year contract with New Zealand rugby and David Rennie says global overtures are now becoming a distraction.

But it hasn't affected the team's success with them back at the top of the super rugby points table after beating the Sharks 18-12 in Durban.

The Chiefs overcame less territory and possession and Rennie concedes it wasn't a top shelf performance.
