Lomu in Charity Match

Rugby World Cup’s top try-scorer Jonah Lomu, 33, will play for the International Select XV in a charity match called, ‘Help the Heroes’ at Twickenham in September. The fundraiser will be staged to help with the care and rehabilitation of British service personnel injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. Lomu scored 15 tries in the 1995 Cup including a quartet against England in the 1995 semi-final, running over Mike Catt in the process. “As soon as I heard about the Help for Heroes cause and the game, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of,” he said, adding: “There are some great names already signed up to this fixture and I’m really looking forward to being a part of it.” Lomu has recently been training with the New Zealand Warriors.
