When Jonah Lomu trampled over Tony Underwood in the World Cup semi-final in 1995, the greatest star rugby union has ever seen was launched on the world. His size and pace seemed to make him unstoppable - and he was still just 20, having only recently learned to play on the wing. How much better would he get? But a year later, a rare and serious kidney disorder threatened more than his career. He fought back, and continued to score tries at a remarkable rate.
Lomu's astonishing story is not just about tries, but about adapting to becoming rugby's first superstar of the professional era, a life lived in the spotlight. This is an extraordinary tale from an extraordinary man.Biografía del autor:
The youngest All Black of all time on his debut, Lomu - all 6'4" and 19 stone of him - burst onto the scene in the 1995 World Cup when he scored four tries against England in the semi-final, usually scored after running through or over the defenders. Although he has since battled with serious illness, he remains one of rugby's greatest crowd pleasers and a fearsome opponent. By the beginning of 2003, he had scored 37 tries in 63 Tests, sixth in the all-time list.
