Former All Blacks player Eric Rush made a touching tribute to All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu in Auckland today during his headstone unveiling.
Rush played alongside Lomu in the New Zealand Sevens side as well as the All Blacks.
The 53‑year‑old made a special speech to his former teammate saying people forget how great a player Lomu was.
Rush poked fun of his former teammates who were at the ceremony saying they all felt the force of Lomu when playing against him.
Lomu was born on 12 May 1975 and died on November 18 2015. He played 63 Tests for the All Blacks.
Meanwhile the All Blacks will take on France at 7.35pm this Saturday in Wellington.
