I have never been one to publicly mourn the loss of a celebrity or someone famous who I never really met or knew much about. However after learning the passing of Jonah Lomu, I felt I needed to make an exception.

As an asian kid studying in a predominantly non-asian school, picking up rugby was akin to an American playing cricket. Jonah’s entrance onto the rugby scene only cemented my love for the game as well as my unflinching support for the All Blacks.

I got to meet this legend once and I was equally star struck and mystified by this giant with astonishing bursts of speed. I could go on and on about the impact he had on the game for me and the Rugby World as a whole but for those who had the pleasure of watching him play, no other reminders are really needed.

Thank you for the memories Jonah.

Rest In Peace.
