WATCH: ‘Poetry in motion’ – Sonny Bill Williams reacts to Wales U20s star’s offload

All Blacks great Sonny Bill Williams praised Wales U20s for their offloading skills against Ireland in the U20 Six Nations on Friday.

In an enthralling match filled with stellar scores, Ireland ran out 44-27 victors over Wales in a 10-try thriller.

Respect from the Offload King

Despite the defeat, it was a memorable night for Wales centre Louie Hennessey who had Williams react to his piece of brilliance in the build-up to Llien Morgan’s try.

Hennessey ran a sharp line before riding the tackle of Ireland centre Hugh Cooney and then producing a stunning offload to full-back Cameron Winnett, who replicated the trick in an offload to fly-half Dan Edwards. The pivot got the ball away to Morgan, who finished the score in the corner.

Dubbed the ‘Offload King’, Williams was renowned for his ability to pass the ball in contact throughout his career and was impressed with what he saw on Friday evening.

“I remember being told off for trying the back flick/offloading when I first started playing union, poetry in motion lads,” Williams tweeted.

Hennessey spotted the World Cup winner’s reaction to his offload and tweeted: “Wow”, with a goat emoji and raised hands emoji.

Wales hung in the match until half-time with Ireland leading 15-14 at the break, but Sam Prendergast led the charge for the visitors as they went on to win the game 44-27.

Six Nations prediction

Meanwhile, Williams has also weighed in on the Six Nations, making his predictions for the tournament.

The former centre predicts that Ireland will complete the Grand Slam, building on their performances in November. He also noted Ireland’s fixture list, which includes home Tests against England and France.

“I am going 🇮🇪 for the Grand Slam… Momentum from the summer wins against the ABs and an easier draw with home tests against (England) and(France)….Just in time to peak before the World Cup.”

“And don’t @ me saying I’m a turn coat, @AllBlacks still my team.”
