One Step at a Time

Jonah Lomu is making a strong recovery from his July kidney transplant and has already named next year’s rugby sevens world cup as his comeback date. “That’s great news because sevens can provide him with the perfect avenue back to top-class rugby,” says sevens coach Gordon Tietjens. “The special environment in the NZ sevens side would be good for him. No-one would put any pressure on him – we’d support him.” Lomu’s long-term goal is to play for the All Blacks in the 2007 World Cup in France.
