Lomu set for move to Leeds?
October 17, 1999
British newspaper reports are suggesting that Leeds rugby club are keen to lure New Zealand World Cup hero Jonah Lomu to Yorkshire
Gary Hetherington, chief executive of Leeds Rhinos (league) and Leeds Tykes (union) said, "We are the only rugby club in the world which could offer him this deal.''
The 24-year-old is likely to wait and see what offers are on the table after the World Cup ends.
Lomu helped the All Blacks beat England with a stunning solo try at Twickenham last Saturday and scored another two in the 101-3 romp against Italy yesterday
