Worcester join race to sign Lomu
October 28, 1999
Allied Dunbar Premiership Two leaders Worcester are the latest to join the hunt to sign New Zealand's Jonah Lomu after the World Cup.
Lomu's contract with the New Zealand Rugby Football Union expires at the end of the World Cup.
The blockbusting wing, who has already scored six tries in four matches in the tournament, is the target for several rugby league and union sides.
New Zealand officials admitted last week that they were worried that they could be priced out of any negotiations to retain the player in the All Blacks side.
