Those who follow international Rugby will know of him. He played for our team the All Blacks a few years ago. He was only 40 years old!

He was often referred to as the "Buldozer" because when he got running no-one could stop him! I recall in the World Cop game in 1998 he had tha ball and was running to the line with two English players hanging onto him and he kept going!

He had a genetic condition that caused his kidneys to fail and about 10 years ago had a kidney transplant that seems to sort it. He died suddenly yesterday leaving a wife and two sons aged 4 and 6.

You're suffering is over now Jonah, you will be sadly missed.
