The late All Black great Jonah Lomu has had a new road in South Auckland named after him.
Jonah Lomu Drive was officially opened at a ceremony in Paerata near Pukekohe yesterday with Lomu's family in attendance.
The new street is just a few metres away from where he played rugby at Wesley College as a schoolboy.
Jonah Lomu's wife Nadene said the world rugby great would have been honoured by the naming.
"Jonah was a very big but humble person," she told the New Zealand Herald. "I think he would probably be quite shy of something like this, but I think it's very deserving and most humbling to see.
"I also think it's a very fitting tribute to Jonah for the imprint that he's left on many heart of the old boys here at Wesley and the ones who are presently here. But also for the generations to come through."
The new road is part of a new housing development in the area.
