Smith hints at All Blacks debut for SBW this weekend

The All Blacks assistant coach Wayne Smith has hinted Sonny Bill Williams could make his international rugby debut against England at Twickenham this weekend but only if the former Bulldog finishes his homework.

Williams has admitted he's been on a fast learning curve in the All Blacks environment spending late night study sessions with Ma'a Nonu trying to get up to speed.

Smith indicated it's likely Williams will be named on the bench for Sunday morning's test after an indifferent performance against the Wallabies from Isaia Toeava.
