Sonny Bill Williams may need minor knee surgery, according to Toronto coach Brian McDermott.

The former All Black was an absentee from the Wolfpack team that beat Huddersfield 18-0 in the Coral Challenge Cup on Wednesday to book their place in Monday's sixth-round draw in New York.

"Sonny Bill has got a little bit of a sore knee at the moment," McDermott said. "We might have a look at having that operated on.

"He might go have that checked out on Saturday. Fingers crossed, by all accounts it's going to be a 10-day or two-week job at worst."

In Williams' absence, Samoa international Ricky Leutele scored the only tries inside the first 10 minutes to put Toronto on their way to a first win as a Super League club.
