Don't be surprised if you see a Lomu in a French jersey at the 2031 Rugby World Cup.

The late Jonah Lomu's young sons Dhyreille and Brayley are in Europe supporting France in their bid for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

When asked by French newspaper Le Parisien if they were ready to become All Blacks in future, they replied in unison: "No, we want to play for France."

Dhyreille Lomu was born in France during his father's brief stint playing for Marseille, hence any eligibility discussions wouldn't be an issue.

While the Lomu boys are backing the French bid, president Emmanuel Macron has distanced himself from any World Cup bid and declined to provide video support for their presentation to World Rugby.
