The last haka: All Blacks pay fitting tribute to Jonah Lomu


JONAH Lomu's former teammates performed this incredible haka as the legend in number 11 was farewelled from Eden Park for the final time.

The haka was led by Buck Shelford, who performed alongside former rugby players including Tana Umaga, John Kirwan and Jeff Wilson.

Thousands of people turned out for the service at Eden Park to pay tribute to Lomu.

All the speakers addressed Lomu's wife Nadene, their sons Brayley and Dhyreille, his mother Hepi, and his sisters, acknowledging their grief.

Pride and sadness permeated the 10,000-strong crowd of people that turned out to farewell the All Black legend, who passed away suddenly 12 days ago.
