Flash Mob Haka featuring Jonah Lomu MNZM September 16 2015, 13 Comments

Jonah Lomu has taken part in the haka, in Covent Garden, London, ahead of the Rugby World Cup. 

“It’s always an honour to perform the haka, whether you’re representing your nation in front of 80,000 people or performing for a group of unsuspecting rugby fans,” Lomu said.

It's even been a really special moment for me having my wife, Nadene and my two boys Brayley and Dhyreille present to watch me perform the haka in London's iconic Covent Garden.

"I didn't think I would perform the haka again," Lomu said. "My two sons have never seen me do the haka before and this has brought it to life for me. It is something special for them as previously they have only seen videos."

Lomu, as a Mastercard ambassador for the tournament, had a stormy relationship with his own father, but after words from Nadene and her example of forgiveness and love, she clearly mended torn hearts after 17 years apart. Lomu's father died two years ago but the rift was non existent and Lomu's son's Brayley and Dhyreille as well as Lomu and his wife, all had memories to cherish. Lomu has said he's determined to make the most of his own sons.

My two sons have never seen me do the haka before and this has brought it to life for me. It is something special for them.  "I do want to see them grow into grown men and I pray my health condition will allow me to do so, through the will of the man above," said Lomu.

"Whether they play rugby or not doesn't matter. I just want them to be healthy and to grow. One thing as a dad you don't want is for them to come to any harm or anything bad to happen to them.

"The illnesses and pain I'm going through, I don't want them to experience that, no dad wants that.

"This [the World Cup trip] is a great experience for them. This is where rugby started, so what a way to take two kids on a journey.

"I'm their dad and I'm trying to set an example and my beautiful wife ensures I do everything I need to do."

Indeed Lomu, who sports tattoos of his two boys names on his right arm and that of his wife on his left one, said Nadene - who Lomu revealed is responsible for Dhyreille's name, coming up with it at 1:00am while pregnant and eating pizza - is an immeasurable support to him.

"Rugby has prepared me for the challenges of life, but the most important thing is that your pillars are rock solid and the family keeps you in great stead," said Lomu.

"I am thankful that I have a beautiful wife and the kids are here. Nadene makes sure that my family stays together.

"She is my manager, my wife, my best friend and my boss!"

Lomu, scorer of 37 tries in 63 test appearances, still has enormous pull as was clear from the number of people, young and old, who sidled up and asked to have photos taken with him which he agreed to - three policemen waited for 20 minutes to have their photo taken with him.

"Its quite humbling for people to recognise me, given it is now 20 years ago since I first played in the World Cup.

"Made all the more humbling when kids come up to me and say 'I never saw you play live, but I watch you on YouTube' and other children saying they want to play like me."
