Jonah Lomu Documentary - Part 2

Following on from our recent posting of Part 1 of the Jonah Lomu short documentary, the much anticipated Part 2 of this insightful video features more thrilling action of the legend in action, with plenty of tries and behind the scenes commentary.

If you haven't been able to watch Part 1 yet, please make sure you do as these two clips combined make for a fantastic 30 minutes of high intensity footage that will bring back many memories for some, and astound others.

Kicking off with the sensational 1999 World Cup performance where he terrorised England once again, who could ever forget the words of Keith Quinn as Lomu barged over the tryline to score.

The Semi-Final against France in the same year will be remembered for two things - France's incredible comeback victory, and Jonah Lomu. Lomu was a man against boys as his pace, power, and grit combined to bash off all in front of him, including big french number eight Abdel Benazzi.

We then follow Lomu as his move to Wellington makes a huge impact, both literally and figuratively. Along with teamates Tana Umaga and Christian Cullen, Lomu is simply unstoppable the majority of the time, with the majority of defenders almost opting to get out of the way rather than stand in front of the runaway train.

Jonah's ability to offload in the tackle, providing the scoring pass, was one of his most fascinating aspects, as he provided many tries for team mates in that manner. It was an element of his play that back then, and even today, sets him apart from the other big wingers of the game.

It's sad that at his current age of 33, Jonah should still be out there doing what he loves, but hasn't been able to. Destiny saw it otherwise, and what we're left with is fantastic memories of the man who was the games first real superstar of global proportions. Jonah single handedly changed rugby, and for that, the great man deserves all the praise and respect shown to him as he enters the next chapter of his life.

The footage doesn't go into Jonah's years of suffering with the devastating illness that effectively ended his career, but that's probably for the best as we want to remember the good times. We hope you enjoyed this awesome two part documentary.

Time: 14:24
Sidenote: In a recent interview when Lomu was asked what he's doing now, he confidently replied that he's having a go at body building, and hopes to compete by April.



  • Strange ending, with the stills of the MRI machine and all that ...

    Sad that he was beaten by his illness, but this man is a benchmark for professional rugbyplayers everywhere!

    A true legend of the game.

  • Yeah it kinda left you feeling like you want more.. but maybe that was the point - to just hint at it I guess, but respectfully not show it.

    We forget how dominant this guy was in full flight. Only 33 and not playing. Poor dude.

  • Jonah managed ''to bash off all in front of him''? a lesser man might make a joke about that comment

  • so tired of all these bastards saying lomu was doped. he was clean and everybody knows that. those who sa otherwise are jealous that's all

  • thats the first time iv heard anyone suggest he took drugs tbh. unless he was taking them since he was a child cos iv seen him as a boy and he was huge then too lol.

    he a legend, he completely transformed rugby into the game it is today as everyone struggled to catch up. would he be as effective today, when everyone is bigger and stronger and better defensively? not sure, but he is still imho the greatest and most influencial player of all time.

    long live jonah lomu!

  • tehsniper, you are a living example of gutless ignorance, grow up.

  • lomu was deadly in attack just pure mass and speed. i've never seen him make a decent tackle though

  • I bet tehsniper wouldnt say that to lomu's face...LMAO!

    Great video once again...esp between 9:20-10:00...BEASTLY!

    Yeh...33 and not playing sucks. I think he's a legend, one of the greatest to ever play the game.

  • thanks for part 2 :)
    nothing much to add
    he's truly a legend, if not THE legend in world rugby!

    did you take these clips from a dvd? would love to get a copy of it, or download the clips :)

  • Great vid! Thanks for posting it. Funny he wanted to be a decathlete. Guess the kiwis missed a couple of gold medals there!

  • He found out he was effectively terminally ill in 1995. His whole career, all those tries, and he was slowly dying in front of us.

    When I heard this I felt pretty guilty about any time I had dissed his fitness or his tackling.

  • the guy's a legend. tehsniper, you're jealous that's all.

  • I feel gutted for him, no longer being able to play the game he loves in the way he wanted it.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at October 03, 2008 9:31 am  

  • There's no way he was doped. Like somebody mentioned before, he was huge as a kid, just genetics, not steroids! just a freak of nature! awesome player!!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at October 03, 2008 12:58 pm  

  • steroids? nah, its called polynesian genetics.

    tehsniper - keep hiding behind your screen and keyboard tough guy.

  • the guy was obviously on serious drugs. tehsniper, although you usually say bullshit, i'm with you on this one

    By Anonymous johnjohn, at October 03, 2008 8:58 pm  

  • That's an absurd claim guys. In fact it's pretty much a very ignorant and childish insult to Lomu. Dare I say it.. you're probably 16, seeing Jonah for the first time, american.. etc.

    Grow up, and as they say where you come from, don't be a hater.

    By Anonymous Toight, at October 03, 2008 10:06 pm  

  • "the guy was obviously on serious drugs", based on what evidence? He's a big guy and he runs fast, is that your evidence? So every big and fast athlete in the world is therefore "on serious drugs". Do you have any idea what you are talking about?

    By Anonymous rayman, at October 04, 2008 6:37 am  

  • yeah im american so what

    By Anonymous johnjohn, at October 04, 2008 1:17 pm

  • A great player in a time when rugby really was taking off. From all true rugby fans world wide we will really miss your talent.

    By Anonymous Dave, at October 05, 2008 5:22 pm  

  • Fantastic clips! The longer the better! I understand that longer clips are harder for poor internet, but god they make for great viewing with a beer!
    As an aussie I got to see our boys try and figure out ways to stop Jonah on so many occasions, and they will definately become my "grandad stories" to be told to whoever wants to hear about the legend that is Jonah Lomu!

    By Anonymous Mitch, at October 07, 2008 9:41 am  

  • he was 6 foot 2 and 14 and a half stone at 14. Thats not drugs! All genes-no drug after all he would never have been allowed to play proffessional sports if he was on the gear! poor bloke-would have been amazing to see him operate at 100% not like the 80% he was at because of his illness.

  • I really wanted to watch the video, but there were SOO many ads at the beginning, and after sitting through 8-9 ads, the video started to be interrupted by more ads. Horrible, I couldn't last through so may ads. Too many!!!
