Jonah Lomu

Jonah Lomu is a man that needs no real introduction.  A legend who he is regarded to be one of the biggest superstars of the game after earning 63 caps for the All Blacks.  As a fan, I will never forget the last few seconds of the Tri-Nations match in 2000 where with just minutes remaining, Lomu steamrolled Stephen Larkham to run down the line and score the winning try and break Wallabies fans hearts everywhere.  Lomu was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome, a serious kidney disorder and went on to receive a kidney transplant in 2004.  In February this year he revealed that he needs a new kidney are the first one has failed. He was inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame on 9 October 2007, and the IRB Hall of Fame on 24 October 2011.
