Honey Hireme has a World Cup sevens winner's medal and now the woman dubbed "Honey Bill Williams" is chasing rugby league World Cup glory.

While her rugby team-mates head home today, Hireme heads to England for the fourth edition of the women's league tournament in Leeds this week.

Hireme, 31, captains the Kiwi Ferns, who will defend their title against England, Australia, France, Russia, Samoa and Tonga.

Hireme plays in the second row or at centre in league, centre in 15s rugby, and in the sevens coach Sean Horan used her as an outside back in Moscow.

She gave a good exhibition of her offloading skills in the sevens extravaganza, where she also scored four tries in helping New Zealand win their first title.

Those skills have seen her likened to Sonny Bill Williams and her ability to switch codes just as easily as the All Black-Kiwi adds to that.

What should the Warriors do with Dane Nielsen?

Try and offload him. He's been a disappointment.

Nothing. He's got another year on his contract.

Give him more of a chance to showcase his skills.

Re-sign him. He's an Origin rep and solid defensive centre.
