It’s Friday, and time for a bit of nostalgia. Jonah Lomu was taken all too soon, and his passing in November united the rugby world in grief. He was rugby’s first global superstar, and brought the game to a whole new level.
He reinvented the style of the winger, and paved the way for an increase in physicality of the sport.
To look back on how much bigger Lomu was than the opposition is quite something. Simply, he was a freak of nature. The raw size of the man suggested that he would not be quick, but boy did he prove his doubters wrong.
Looking back on an amazing career, it is difficult to pick out his best moments. Luckily, Youtube channel The Ten Best have ranked his top ten tries, and they are something to behold.
The giant was unplayable, and he dominated the sport.
Of course, most people’s abiding memory of Lomu was when he steamrolled Mike Catt in the 1995 World Cup. However, this video shows just how prolific he was.
What a beast. Rest in peace, big man.
