PAUL Gallen has been on a collision course with Sonny Bill Williams for several years. For some it’ s a dream match between two rugby league legends. The only thing standing in the way of the Gallen -SBW showdown is the need for some relatively clean air away from their sporting commitments.

Gallen has long eyed off a boxing bout with All Blacks superstar Sonny Bill Williams but their anticipated fight hasn’t yet materialised.
