The Barbarians have paid tribute to New Zealand great Jonah Lomu who died on Wednesday at the age of 40.

Lomu is fondly remembered by all at the famous invitation club, for whom he appeared on four occasions between 2000 and 2002.

The wing played for the Barbarians against England (twice), Ireland and Scotland, running riot against the latter at Murrayfield in 2001 to score four tries in a 47-27 victory.

Barbarians’ president Micky Steele-Bodger said: "Jonah Lomu was an extraordinary player and an extraordinary man.

“He was one of the greatest of all time on the pitch and a delightful, happy character to be with off it. It is very sad to lose him at such a young age and our hearts go out to his family.”
