SBW receives hero’s welcome in Cape Town

All Black Sonny Bill Williams received a warm welcome in Cape town, his "second home", ahead of their game against the Springboks.

The charismatic, superstar back has a huge following in the Cape and was modest when asked about his support base in South Africa.

"I'm not sure about love," the 32-year-old joked when talking to Sport24.

"But I definitely feel comfortable here. I get a lot of support, just like the rest of the boys.

"My wife is South African so this is like a second home to, not just myself, but my family and my little girls.

"We always enjoy coming here, especially Cape Town.

"One day, God willing, I'll bring my girls across."

New Zealand have already secured this year's Rugby Championship which included a memorable 57-0 demolition of South Africa in Albany three weekends ago.

Williams says his side still aren't lacking motvation for Saturday.

"When it comes down to put on that jersey for the All Blacks, there is pressure there no matter what," he said.

"It doesn't really matter if it is a dead rubber or not. We're going out there to win and we know that this South African team is going to be hurting from the last game.

"We can come up with the magical plays, but if we don't have the attitude right it's going to be a tough day."
