Rugby fans will have a chance to meet the legendary All Black player, Jonah Lomu up close in person during this ‘An Audience With’ event. Winning three Hong Kong Sevens trophies and scoring seven tries at the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa, Jonah Lomu became a real rugby icon. He won for New Zealand in 1995 and 1996, brought home a gold medal from the 1998 Commonwealth Games and later led his country to the first Rugby World Cup Sevens victory in Argentina. The audiences will listen to Lomu’s life and career stories and will be given the chance to take pictures with him. Two hours of free parking will be available for the duration of the event.
