7:57 am on 5 July 2010

The new Canterbury and Crusaders rugby signing Sonny Bill Williams has undergone minor knee surgery and is expected to be able to fully train with the Canterbury team within two to three weeks.

The surgery was undertaken to address some minor cartilage damage in his knee.

Medical specialists had advised Williams to undergo the procedure as a preventive measure to avoid future problems.

Williams had the successful surgery in Brisbane on Thursday.
