Fantastic compilation. Thanks for sharing.
Something that I noticed while watching those clips which surprised me and isn't often discussed when speaking of Lomu's accomplishments and abilities, is just how balanced a runner he was. Yes, he had electrifying pace, strength, and of course size, but he could also step and swerve with ease while at full pace to beat defenders. For a bloke his size, especially in that era was completely unheard of. Pure magic!
Jonah, you left an indelible mark around the world and captured the minds and hearts of everyone that watched you on the pitch. Thank you.
Rest in peace big fella.

Amazing bit of skill on display but the finish looked like a knock-on to my eyes.

As far as I'm concerned his actions (the head slam) were absolutely deserving of a red card. That kind of behaviour has absolutely no place in our game and only seeks to undermine the foundation of the game; respect. I also think the subsequent suspension is warranted, if even a bit too lenient.

As the great Bill McLaren would have said: "Champagne rugby" advertisements! Bravo Guinness.

Great show of skills - great to see that kind of enterprise coming from the Rugby hotbed of Arkansas in middle 'Merica.

It's America - there's a market for anything absurd.

One of THE BEST rugby vids posted on RD for a while! The electricity of the crowd and the nervous excitement of Ferris were all too apparent. Nevermind the brilliant driving tackle...

While I've always supported proper rucking, in its current incarnation and past forms, both of the above acts were dangerous and could have seriously injured the receiving players. It does not take much to break ribs, or damage internal organs - especially not when a 130kg prop is putting the hoof down.

Incredible video. One of the true legends of sport - not just rugby.
