Sonny Bill Williams isn't overthinking his trip to Christchurch after last Friday's terror attacks - he just wants to support his fellow Muslims at today's prayers.
The veteran All Black touched down in the Garden City last night ahead of the one-week anniversary of the mass shooting at two mosques which saw 50 people killed.
Williams said today was an important step in healing from the tragedy.
"I'll be heading to Friday prayers," the 33-year-old said.
"I think it's important to show a united front and get to the mosque and show that us as Muslims, we know that we're valued New Zealanders."
Williams was relieved from his playing responsibilities with the Blues for this weekend's Super Rugby action to be in Christchurch, but he's playing down the gesture.
"I'm just down here to show support - I don't have all the answers but I'm definitely down here just to try and help the best way I can."
