Jonah Lomu pictured above during the 31-28
defeat against England on 9th November 2002.
His All Blacks Record: Played 63: Won 44, Drew 2, Lost 17. He scored 37 tries and 185 points.
Jonah Lomu died in Auckland on 18th. November 2015 of a heart attack, one week after his fortieth birthday.
He had just returned from a family holiday in Dubai after spending several
weeks in England covering the 2015 World Cup - won by New Zealand.
At the age of 19 years and 45 days, Lomu became the youngest All Black test player as he debuted
on the wing against France in 1994, breaking a record that had been held by Edgar Wrigley since 1905.
The following year Lomu was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, a serious kidney disorder.
Jonah had a kidney transplant on 28th. July 1995, in Auckland, New Zealand.
The kidney was donated by Wellington radio presenter Grant Kereama.
Jonah Lomu was appointed as a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the Queen's Birthday
Honours list on 4 June 2007.
By 2011 the transplant was failing and for the last six years of his life he had to undergo dialysis for
six hours every other day - as was the case whilst attending the 2015 World Cup in England.
