Williams was slammed by fans after posting a snap of his wife Alana and their eldest daughter Imaan cruising around Rarotonga in a roofless convertible car.
The photo looked relatively innocent until people noticed SBW’s toddler daughter wasn’t strapped into a child seat, causing some people to comment disapprovingly.
However, Sopoaga, who has maternal links to Manihiki, came to his defence, posting a photo on Twitter to point out that Williams’ indiscretion was not a big deal on Rarotonga.
Both players are currently enjoying the rugby offseason, with Williams set to link back up with the Blues, and Sopoaga to return to the Highlanders for the 2018 Super Rugby campaign.
