Not all about SBW - Rabbitohs

Sydney - South Sydney back-rower Ben Lowe says the Rabbitohs can't afford to focus on Sonny Bill Williams in Thursday's NRL season-opener and risk having their pants pulled down by one of his Sydney Roosters team-mates.

According to the website, Williams is expected to make his much-hyped rugby league return at Allianz Stadium, with his impact sure to prove telling on the final result.

But Lowe said the Roosters had plenty of talent aside from Williams, with their impressive recruitment drive having also netted the likes of Michael Jennings, James Maloney and Luke O'Donnell.

"A lot of people are very interested to see how he (Williams) goes, but we're worried about the full 17," Lowe said.

"We worry about one person and the other 16 will probably pull our pants down and it would be quite embarrassing."

Williams has been battling knee and pectoral muscle injuries since his late arrival to the club following his boxing commitments last month.

His anticipated return however has had a major impact on ticket sales with just 7 000 seats still available for the opening match.
