San Diego, CA (November 10, 2014) – Own a truly unique piece of rugby history while supporting the United States Rugby Foundation by putting in the high bid for a Sonny Bill Williams autographed New Zealand All Blacks rugby jersey signed by one of the most exciting players in the game today.
Williams autographed the jersey during the week leading up to the All Blacks historic match with the United States, which took place at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, November 1, 2014.
As was expected from the number one team in the world, New Zealand comfortably defeated the Eagles by a score of 74-6. The sellout crowd of over 60,000 witnessed many memorable New Zealand tries during the match, including two by the Man of the Match, Sonny Bill Williams. He followed up his outstanding performance against the United States with another stellar display against England this past weekend in the All Blacks narrow 24-21 comeback victory at Twickenham.
His match against the United States marked Sonny Bill’s rapid return to the All Blacks and based on his performances in these past two games, barring injury, looks to be a certainty for inclusion on the 2015 All Blacks Rugby World Cup team.
Not only will the high bidder of this jersey receive a piece of sports memorabilia that will take its rightful place in any sports collection but they will have the satisfaction of knowing that every cent from their winning bid will go towards supporting youth rugby.
Photos of the autographed jersey and more information about Sonny Bill Williams can be found on eBay, item #181582539304. The bidding will conclude at 12:00 p.m. (PST) on Monday, November 17, 2014.
This is the first of several autographed balls and jerseys from the New Zealand All Blacks vs United States Eagles match that will be on the auction block in the coming weeks.
