The All Blacks midfielder Sonny Bill Willams is seriously considering a return to the National Rugby League, possibly as soon as next year, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Williams confirmed yesterday he's having second thoughts about remaing in New Zealand after the World Cup.

The newspaper says he's been linked to the Sydney Roosters club.

Williams still has 12 months to wait before the expiry of an agreement with the Canterbury Bulldogs preventing him from playing for a rival NRL club, after he walked out on the club three years ago.

However there's a suggestion the Bulldogs may consider waiving the clause allowing Williams to join the club, although a 2013 NRL return seems more likely.
