Jonah Lomu dead at 40


Recommended Posts



Former All Blacks Doctor John Mayhew confirmed to ONE News that Lomu has passed away.

He wouldn’t comment any further – only that the family has asked for privacy.

Lomu earned 63 caps after debuting as a schoolboy in 1993, against France.

He scored 37 tries.

In 1995 he  was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, a serious kidney disorder.

Details of when and how he passed away are still emerging.

Lomu, widely recognised as among the five greatest players of all time, was  married three times and was living with his third wide Nadine Qirk, whom he wedded in 2012.

More to come.

Big shock, as although we know he'd had his health problems there hadn't been any reports of any concerns recently. Thoughts with him and his family.

One of the greatest athletes to ever grace a field of any kind. A physical specimen that displayed a deadly combination of strength, power, speed, and agility.

He had some holes in his game defensively that other teams tried to exploit, but man, when he had the ball he was a monster.
