Jonah Lomu

A global star in his own right after his exploits in Rugby World Cup 1995, Jonah Lomu accepted invitations to play for the Barbarians on the three summer tours between 2000 and 2002. His five tries in four appearances included four in one match against Scotland at Murrayfield in 2001 when he was in particularly devastating form.

Afflicted by kidney disease from his retirement from rugby, Jonah required frequent dialysis treatement. He died suddenly of a heart attack in November 2015 immediately on his return home after the Rugby World Cup in London.

The game of rugby was stunned, tributes flooding in from all over the world.
