New Zealand Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens has not ruled out the possibility of Jonah Lomu making an appearance at next year's Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.
The giant wing, who is working his way back to fitness after shoulder surgery and a kidney transplant, was part of the gold medal-winning team at the 1998 Kuala Lumpur Games which he credited as being "the biggest highlight of my career".
Tietjens said he had not discussed Games selection with Lomu but told The Sunday Star-Times: "He's been in the team before and if he can get fit there is no reason why he couldn't make the team."
Representing the British & Irish Lions is the pinnacle of any player's career, according to two-Tour veteran Phil Vickery, who says the experience is further enhanced by the mass support afforded to them in the southern hemisphere.
British & Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton has vowed never to leave his native Wales and wants more players to follow his lead, rather than assume the grass is greener on the other side of the Channel.
Ryan Grant displayed some impressive singing skills while on tour with the British & Irish Lions. The full release of Lions Raw will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray from October 28th. Pre-order on Amazon.
