Hard to imagine him returning to playing rugby now, and certainly not at Super 14 level. He was at least considered but couldn't even make the bench. So I voted that he'll become an NPC coach, as his best comeback to the rugby ladder. This man keeps secrets.
on rugby365.com there was an article saying he was still trying to get back to playing. I believe in him, what he's done so far is pretty extroadinary. I can't see him as a wing though.. maybe a tad.. But yeah he says hes squatting 370+kgs and thats bloody powerful! he did 8 reps of it. Think he said thats more than when he was fit and playing lol
i think he has what it takes to make the all blacks again even though is about 32 yrs old i mean the man is squating over 300kg now thats impressive and hey anybody with that much heart has to make at least back to playing super 14
I don't think he'll make it back. With the problems he had he won't ever reach peak fitness again. I'd admire him if he still played rugby but NPC is probably his best bet and it's upto him if he wants to stay at that level.
I think his withdrawal for a time was a great shame for Rugby Union. I mean the guy was a global star already, think what else he could have acheived?
Man i'd really like him to play for the ABs again but i think it's virtually impossible for him to make it. I think the highest level of rugby he could possibly play is NPC. I hope Jonah proves me wrong.
You have got to admire the guy for never giving up. For all that he has gone through to still want to play rugby and at the highest level shows an unbelievable amount of courage. A level of courage that is almost unmatched by anyone.
I have so much respect for the guy and as long as he wants to play rugby I will support him 100%.
How can anyone who knows what he has gone through even consider saying that he won't play rugby again? This guy has already proved loads of people wrong and I hope that he proves everybody wrong again and goes on and plays for the All Blacks.
Whether he does or not is irrelevant - Jonah Lomu's message for everybody is no matter how bad things get or how impossible things look you should never give up and you should never let your dreams die no matter how hard they look. And also you should never listen to the people that say you can't do things. Only listen to the people that say that you can.
I want Lomu to play for the All Blacks again if he can prove that he is good enough.
But first I want to see him back playing domestic rugby again.
The guy is a legend and not just for what he did on the field.
