The iconic winger scored four tries as the All Blacks went onto to blitz England 45-29 in their semi-final in Cape Town.

The then 20-year-old had been impressive in the tournament, starting with the opening game against Ireland in which he scored two of his seven tries for the touranment.

But it was the moment he ran over England fullback Mike Catt that he became a superstar.

Lomu gathered the ball 30 metres out and stepped around an England defender before bulldozing over top of Catt and scoring.

Lomu made his All Black debut against France in Christchurch in 1994 and went onto play 63 Tests the last being against Wales in Cardiff in 2002.
