Watch: SBW showcases offloading masterclass, sets up sublime try in Counties B hit out




All Blacks midfielder Sonny Bill Williams didn't skip a beat in his return to rugby action this afternoon, playing footy for the first time in a month and a half for the Counties B squad in a trial match.

The All Blacks midfielder had his first game of rugby since his red card against the Lions in Wellington last month.

Williams played about 60 minutes of rugby for the Counties B side at Bombay Rugby Club just south of Auckland.

His ban for a red card in the second Lions Test was lifted after last night's "Game of Three Halves" match, which featured the All Blacks' squad against the Counties Manukau and Taranaki Mitre 10 Cup sides.

Williams looked impressive making several line breaks and pulled off a number of his trademark offloads for his teammates.

He even set up a try for his winger before leaving the field.

The cross-code star is available for selection for the All Blacks’ Bledisloe Cup Test opener against the Wallabies.

Williams will be travelling with the All Blacks squad tomorrow to Sydney and is available for selection in New Zealand's opening Bledisloe Cup Test against the Wallabies next Saturday.

He hadn't played for nearly two months after being sent off in the All Blacks' Lions Test match in Wellington on July 1.
