Continuing panel discussion with Auckland Chamber of Commerce
Continuing panel discussion with Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO Michael Barnett and AUT Professor Welby Ings about Sonny Bill Williams. Barnett reckons that Williams should have talked to his employer first. He wonders if Williams is giving back BNZ's sponsorship money. He thinks that Williams is a distractor. Ings mentions that people accommodated Michael Jones' request not to play on Sunday because of his religious beliefs because Jones told them about it. Gillies notes that the Blues and the bank don't care. Ings thinks that they are being smart by not talking about it. Garner thinks that the bank will be frustrated with the Blues and NZ Rugby for not sorting this out.
