Sonny Bill catches up with 'bro' Parnell

    2017-05-17 10:00

    Cape Town - The 'bromance' between Sonny Bill Williams and Wayne Parnell looks to be blossoming after the pair caught up with each other in Cape Town over the weekend. 

    Williams is in town with the Blues, who are preparing for battle against the Stormers in a highly-anticipated Super Rugby encounter at Newlands on Friday night. 

    Kick-off is at 19:00.

    The 31-year-old All Black posted a picture to his Twitter account of him and Parnell hanging out at a Cape Town residence. 

    It is not the first time that Williams, an avid cricket lover, has met up with Parnell. 

    During the Proteas' February/March tour of New Zealand Williams met with Parnell, Hashim Amla and Imran Tahir while he has also congratulated Amla on playing his 100th Test against Sri Lanka in Johannesburg in early January. 

    Williams has been named in the Blues' starting line-up for Friday's clash while Parnell has left South African shores with the Proteas ahead of their three-match ODI series against England and the ICC Champions Trophy.
