The Lomu Legacy

In a week that has seen the western world sent into  a reflective pause thanks to the violence of a few lost men hiding their truth under an all encompassing  cloak of religious radicalisation, the rugby world learns of the loss of a modern sporting icon.

For those of us privileged to have watched Lomu evolve into one of the games most exciting players, we smile broadly at the joy he bought us as a superb athlete.

As a man, Jonah was a simple soul with a cheeky streak.

He knew where he came from and spent the last part of his time here on earth trying to inspire others to strive under the belief that with a bit of hard work and commitment anything was possible, using himself as the example.

Thoughts and prayers are with Jonah’s wife and young children as well as his broader rugby family.

Although Jonah had been suffering ill-health since 1995, his was a talent retired too soon and a life ended prematurely.
