Friday Funnies - How to stop Jonah Lomu, with Kearnsey's Chalkboard

Friday Funnies - How to stop Jonah Lomu, with Kearnsey's Chalkboard

In his prime, Jonah Lomu was pretty much an unstoppable machine. Incredibly powerful, fast, and agile for a big guy, Jonah troubled defences for many years.

We've come across this amusing clip that has former Australian hooker and captain Phil Kearns spotlighting his colleague's technique for bringing down the big All Black in 1999.

Many of you might remember Rod Kafer as a former Wallabies, Brumbies, and Leicester Tigers player. He is one of only two players to have won both the Southern and Northern Hemisphere's biggest trophies. The Super 12 with the Brumbies, and the Heineken Cup with Leicester. The only other player to do this is Doug Howlett with Auckland and Munster.

Kafer went on to coach Saracens for a short time, but has since moved on and put that wisdom to use as a TV pundit and occasional commentator. He has a slot called Kafe's Chalkboard on the Australian show The Rugby Club, in which he analyses and dissects different elements of the game.

Absent from the show last week for some reason, Phil Kearns and Greg Martin took over, deciding it was time to analyse Kafer himself.

The result was pretty funny, with some revealing footage being dug up from ten years ago. We felt it was worth sharing for the laugh, and as an excuse to show more of the great Jonah in action once again.
