Tony 'T-Rex' Williams wants to be an 80 minute player not just make an impact off the bench

    KANGAROOS forward Tony Williams has ended debate over his on-field role by declaring: "I want to play the whole 80 minutes."
    Manly coach Geoff Toovey attracted criticism this year by playing Williams the entire game.
    Some believed the big forward was more destructive in short bursts off the bench.
    Speaking in camp with the Australian side, Williams - who will join Canterbury Bulldogs next season - was adamant he wanted to play the full match. Bulldogs coach Des Hasler, though, may see it differently.
    "Coming off the bench or the full 80, I just want to give my best," he said.
    "I don't know the best way of using me; I just want to go out there and do my thing, but I'd rather be on for the whole 80."
    Williams spoke about his impending move to Belmore and being re-acquainted with Hasler.

    "They (Canterbury) made the finals. If I can do my bit and help them get back up there, that will be something special," Williams said.
    "He (Hasler) has done a lot for me in the past. It will be good to be involved with him again.
    "Des does get the best out everyone individually.
    "(But) at the moment I want to concentrate on this Test. I'm pretty happy to make the team."
    Williams conceded his form at Brookvale dipped after signing with the Dogs. 

    "Early in the year, it kind of got me," he said. "It was hard to think that I was actually going next year."
    Pressed on Hasler's style of play among his forwards, Williams said: "Dessie tries to change it up a bit. He tries to get everyone knowing how to pass.
    "We've been doing that (at Manly) for a while now."
