We will miss you big man.

All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu has died, aged 40.

Lomu's death has sparked an outpouring of grief as tributes pour in for the rugby great.

Lomu battled kidney disorders since the end of 1995 when he was diagnosed with nephritic syndrome. He had a kidney transplant in 2004 but has had health setbacks since then.

He was understood to have died in Auckland after holidaying in Dubai on his way back to New Zealand following the World Cup.


He also lent his name to the best dam PlayStation rugby game.

Could hear the news report in the background for someone passing, had no idea it was Lomu! The guy just arrived back in country.

Sad to lose one of the greats of Rugby at such an early age.

This try is one of the best (if not the best) of all time:

And they haven't made a decent one since in my view, glad to see he put his name to a very decent game!
