The boys of the late great Jonah Lomu are aiming to make an impact in a different field.
Lomu, a legend of world rugby, died in 2015 from complications following a kidney condition.
Both boys,Dhyreille and Brayley, have dreams of becoming the best in the world, just like their dad Jonah.
“To be the best tennis player in the world you should put in effort and always try hard,” 10-year-old Brayley said.
Only playing for three-and-a-half-years, the pair are reaching for the sky.
“My dream is to become a number one professional tennis player in the world,” Dhyreille, 12, said.
“Dad will always be the best and I thought to maybe give something else a try cause I’ll never be better than him,”.
