The last time Sonny Bill Williams came across French referee Jerome Garces, he was famously sent from the field.
The All Blacks second five‑eighth is confident there will not be a repeat of the red card he received in the second Lions test in June when Garces takes charge of tomorrow’s Rugby Championship Test against the Springboks in Cape Town.
Williams was sent off in the 25th minute of the 24‑21 loss to the Lions in Wellington after his shoulder connected with Anthony Watson's head in a tackle attempt.
Williams says he has gone back and worked hard on his tackle technique and feels like his made steps in the right direction to hopefully not get a red card or maybe a yellow.
The All Blacks will face the Springboks at 3.05am tomorrow while Australia will meet Argentina at 10.40am tomorrow.
