The son of All Black superstar Jonah Lomu has revealed he’d prefer to play in the Six Nations should he follow in his legendary late father’s footsteps.
Lomu, who currently plays on the wing, was born in France during his Dad’s brief stint playing for Marseille, hence any eligibility discussions wouldn’t be an issue.

Despite being 11, he’s already played in older teams as his obvious talent is beginning to shine through.
Lomu’s stime in France came towards the end of the his career, which also included a stint with the Cardiff Blues in Europe.
