Robin Williams: “I Realised I Could Fall Out of Jonah’s Nose …”

Jonah Lomu has announced his withdrawal from this year’s NPC competition, and has given up any hope of making the 2003 World Cup squad. The most famed of wingers has experienced foot and calf muscle problems as a result of his dialysis treatment. In Peter Fitzsimons’ SMH column Robin Williams recalls his encounter with the taro-fuelled combine harvester: “It is so freakin’ brutal. I met Jonah Lomu. I never knew how huge he was. I felt like a peasant in a Godzilla movie. Quickly! Tell the other villagers! We go now! I realised I could fall out of Jonah’s nose, and he wouldn’t even know.”
