Jonah Lomu

Jonah Lomu was a professional New Zealand Rugby Union player who played 63 games after he debuted for the All Blacks in 1994. He was the first global superstar in rugby. He made a huge impact on the game.

In 2003 Jonah Lomu had kidney disease. He couldn’t play rugby because he had kidney problems. The side effects of dialysis meant he suffered nerve damage, he may have ended up on a wheelchair. Luckily for Jonah, Grant Kereama decided to donate him a Kidney. Jonah Lomu really wanted to go back and play rugby. But the doctor said to quit because of his kidneys.

In 2005 Jonah began to comeback. He tried playing for Wellington, Hong Kong and France. But he soon gave up his dream of being an all black again. He retired on 2007.
