Jonah Lomu on the charge for Wellington Hurricanes
Jonah got into playing rugby at quite a late age


Jonah Lomu


Rugby has been a massive part of my life ever since I was 14.

My deputy headmaster at my school, Wesley College in South Auckland, got me into the game.

He noticed something I didn't and soon after, I had a trial for the school first XV and ended up making the side.

I was the youngest player ever to make the first XV in the history of our school.

And it went on from there.
