RUGBY league has found a new version of Roosters superstar Sonny Bill Williams - except this one can really fight.
Willis Meehan is a 116kg, 17-year-old powerhouse who has emerged at the Australian schoolboys championships in Cairns as one of the country's hottest sporting talents.
He is already a gold medal favourite in the super heavyweight division for next year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Meehan is a blockbusting centre for the Sydney Roosters' Holden Cup team and is playing for NSW Combined High Schools, who take on Queensland in today's grand final.
He is the son of former heavyweight champ Kali Meehan who had a career of 42 fights for 38 wins.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson and chairman Nick Politis are backing the rookie's Commonwealth Games bid, declaring the club would be proud for one of its boom players to represent his country in another sport.

To get into Games contention, the teenager had to beat London Olympian Johan Linde, a 30-year-old far more experienced boxer, to win the recent Australian amateur title.

Australia's foremost boxing critic Grantlee Kieza has no doubts he can win the heavyweight gold medal in Scotland next year.
"To beat an Olympian at 17 years of age shows he's got an enormous future in boxing," Kieza said.
"He'd beat Sonny Bill Williams for sure. Willis has been beating proper fighters while they stop Sonny's bouts a couple of rounds early if he looks like getting beaten."
Somehow this hugely talented boxer/footballer is determined to make a career out of both sports, committing himself to two specialised training programs.
For a youngster who can obviously handle himself in any situation on the footy field, he also fully supports the NRL crackdown on punching.
"There's no need for it we're out there to play footy, not fight," he says.
