Tributes Poor In For The Late, Great Jonah Lomu
New Zealand rugby legend Jonah Lomu has died unexpectedly in Auckland at the age of 40.
The former All Black, who scored 37 tries in 63 caps for his country, has suffered from sever kidney problems since retiring in 2002.
Tributes have been pouring in for the greatest rugby player the world has ever seen.
NZR CEO Steve Tew: “….Jonah was a legend of our game and loved by his many fans both here and around the world.”
