The much-anticipated match between Sonny Bill Williams and Barry Hall was epic. The dominance shown was truly unpredictable.
All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams could have conceivably spelled the end of Barry Hall’s career with his stunning win. Bill Hallway didn’t stand a chance as Sonny came at him head-on and knocked his opponent down within the first 45 seconds. The shattered left hook ended with Hallway needing the ropes to support him.
Barry Hall’s misfortune didn’t end there, however. Before the night ended, Barry was knocked down a total of three times, which required the referee to step in and prevent him from being so brutally beaten.
