Sonny Bill Williams vs Barry Hall

Post by King-Eliagh » Thu Feb 09, 2012 8:41 am

Who would win in the ring folks? And give us a reason as well eh.

For me, although I think Barry Hall has a lot of talent I think his age and strength would let him down against Sonny Bill. Perhaps if he trained hard for a year he might put up a good fight but not now. Sonny Bill in 2 rounds.

They're not fighting are they?

No, not anytime soon but you never know. I'm just posing the question after Sonny's win last night, which by the way wasnt glorious but he'd still wipe Barry if you ask me.

I have no idea. Why do you think he'd wipe Barry?

What is this? What has this got to do with the code wars? Move it to the other board.

Shut yo yappin nsw. They've both been NRL and AFL players respectively, and they might fight in the ring later. Codes and fighting is implicit.

Xman I put my opinion of why in the first post. It also refers to the fact that RL players are inevitably stronger than AR players.

Sonny Bill would drop him. Think Sonny would be in a heavier weight division than Barry too.
AFL guy would be seriously out classed.

I don't think he would drop him at all. He'd win - because he has boxing experience and Hall doesn't. But Hall can stand up in a fight. It would be an interesting match that honestly I would pay to see.

I looked at their stats. Is funny there is actually 3kg between them which surprised me. I still think Sonny Bill would have too much power behind his hits for Barry to contain him, even if Barry was trained up.

Hall doesn't lack power. Ask the victim here;

if barry trained up maybe, but given the fact he had been sitting in a commentary box the last few years being paid to do not much, i doubt he would even bother considering it

Lol lol lol .
You are talking up a bloke who's claim to fame is being a King hitter .
Just like the YouTube clip...
That poor fumbler wasn't looking ...wow how tough.

Here's a fact for fooly .
Big bad bazz was all Gung ho about taking up boxing ,then realised his opponent would be facing him .
& he shit himself & gave up before he even had 1 fight.

Was called out by an ex bouncer 40 yr old ..& Barry declined .

Lol the Aflol hardman is as soft as butter

Yeah like I said in the other posts. AFL has more dog shots than any other sport.

Barry wouldn't even get an opportunity like that against Sonny Bill Williams.

Is obvious if it came down to a bunch of AFL players punching on with NRL guys they would get destroyed.

The fact that it was a king hit is irrelevant. It showed that Hall has the power of the punch, which stands him in good form.

The call out was for a street fight and Hall knew better as a media personality. A rugby league media personality would have responded the same.

You have NFI .
Firstly .
A king hit is a cowardly punch .
I've seen scrawny little men knock out people when they were not looking .
It has little to do with power .
It has to do with someone getting hit when not expecting it,no chance to duck,block ,or hit back.

Secondly why are you commenting on Barry Hall being called out by an ex bouncer .
You know fuck all about it .
It was not a street fight .
It was in the ring .
Clueless fuckhead .
