Lomu gets the message

Some of you may remember that last March the junior section of Vigo Rugby Club in Spain wrote a message in a bottle intended for the attention of All Black legend Jonah Lomu.

Well, eleven months and 41,000 kilometres later the bottle/message has reached its final destination, with Lomu taking possession last Sunday following the match between his current club Marseille Vitrolles Rugby and Sporting Club Mazametain.

It appears that the the six degrees of separation theory that lay behind the plan to get the message to Lomu didn't quite work, with the former All Black being the seventh link in the chain.

Hellow, we just want to say that Vigo Rugby Club is from Galicai, in the northwest of Spain.

Thanks...;)

A Kiwi friend of mine who once trialed for the blacks didn't rate Lomu all that highly.....
