“I’m keen to get back into the ring, I’ve got a couple of years,” he told reporters.
Williams switched between league and union during his 17-year career, winning NRL titles with the Canterbury Bulldogs and Sydney Roosters and the 2012 Super Rugby title with the Chiefs.
Aside from his World Cup victories with the All Blacks, he was also involved in the side that drew the 2017 series against the touring British and Irish Lions.
