Jonah Lomu has died at age 40.

A big man with a huge heart - gone far too soon.

I was saddened to hear this morning of the untimely death of Jonah Lomu.  Perhaps one of world rugby's best-ever players, he suffered from a rare kidney problem and despite having a transplant in 2004, had to retire earlier than most of his cohort of plyers.  He was an amazing man by all accounts and always came over so well in interviews.

Jonah, you will be missed.
Are your, or your friends'/relatives', garages, lofts or sheds full of unused DIY gear, sewing/knitting machines or fabric and haberdashery stuff?

Just seen this thread - yes very sad indeed and way too young.

The way he simply ran over (or perhaps through) opposition players remains unparalleled. His performance against England in 1995 was simply awesome.
