Jonah Lomu - The game that created a Legend. As stunning collage of images from the Rugby World Cup Semi Final at Newlands in Cape Town, South Africa capturing the dramatic moments when Jonah Lomu spectacularly launched himself in to the global spotlight and became a legend of the game.
Jonah Lomu’s awesome stature, speed and power had never been seen on a rugby field before and although he had scored tries in the earlier group stages of the tournament it was the semi-final against England in front the watching world that Jonah Lomu chose as the stage for his finest and career-defining performance.
Images of him flattening Mike Catt, England’s full back and last line of England’s defence, to score the opening try and running around a diving Rob Andrew to score another of his 4 tries in the match, have become some of the most iconic images in sporting history.
Although New Zealand lost in the final to hosts South Africa, Jonah Lomu was the stand out player of the tournament. He produced another phenomenal performance during the 1999 World Cup and remains the leading try scorer, alongside flying South African wing Bryan Habana, in World Cup history with 15 tries.
A rare kidney condition would limit his international career and sadly cause his untimely death at the age of 40 in 2015. His performances throughout his career, most notably the World Cup semi-final in 1995 have inspired a generation of rugby players throughout the world and helped launch rugby in to the professional era.
