Best Shape Yet

Jonah Lomu, 34, returns to rugby this month playing for French amateur side Marseille-Vitrolles and he says he is in the best shape ever. Once the most feared man in world rugby, Lomu, who played 63 tests for the All Blacks between 1994 and 2002 before his career was cut short by kidney disease, has also not ruled out playing for the All Blacks again in the future. “That is still a dream,” he insisted. “You never lose the desire to play for your country.” “I’m stronger than I’ve ever been,” Lomu told Reuters after being unveiled by Japanese rugby officials as an ambassador for the 2019 World Cup. “I’m running the 100 metres in 10.9 but I’m even more surprised by what I’m doing in weights. I can dead-lift 300 kilos with my eyes closed. I am beating my previous by a country mile.”
