It really is a testament to the man that, on the other side of the world, a national newspaper is dedicating a large portion of their front page to Jonah Lomu. His influence around the globe was such that his passing really needed to marked in a suitably grand way.
The Irish Examiner have fairly hit the nail on the head in that regard.
Unsurprisingly, the tribute is gaining a lot of love back in Lomu's homeland.
@irishexaminer Nobody does poetic sorrow quite as well as the Irish. Respect, from NZ.
