Lomu moves toward Rugby World cup 2007

Jonah Lomu has taken another step towards his dream of appearing in the 2007 World Cup, after North Harbour named him in their NPC squad.

The New Zealand winger is attempting yet another comeback after a catalogue of serious injuries, and a sustained performance at club level could yet see him force his way into national coach Graham Henry’s plans.

A kidney transplant and a broken ankle have robbed Lomu of a large chunk of his rugby career, but he has not given up on his aim of adding to his 63-cap tally.

The 31-year-old threw his first match ball in nearly four months in an Auckland club match last weekend, managing 30 minutes for local side Massey.

Lomu will still face the tough task of forcing his way in front of current All Black wingers Doug Howlett, Joe Rokocoko and Sitiveni Sivivatu.
