PIC: Twitter delivered the greatest video game of all time to the Australian Rugby team last night
We can only assume a ‘no hand-offs’ rule applied.
The title of ‘best video game of all time’ is something that would inevitably spark plenty of debate, but as far we’re concerned there’s only one winner: Jonah Lomu Rugby on the original PlayStation.
Sure, it might lack the fancy graphics and ridiculous attention to detail of modern day games, but we don’t think there’s a game that has acquired the cult status that it has, largely due to the simple gameplay and wonderful commentary of the late Bill McLaren.
Who could forget lines like "like cattle trucks in a shunting yard" or "he was digging like a demented mole there.”
Not everyone will agree with us, but it seems as if the Australian rugby team do, with Drew Mitchell putting a shout out on Twitter on Tuesday to see if there might be a copy doing the rounds in London.
Anyone selling or know where i can buy a working Play Station 1 with Jonah Lomu Rugby game in London please?

Even Sonny Bill Williams got in on the act.
Let me know when you work out who's your best player so I can teach him a lesson #johnahschampsinceagesago 😂😂 https://t.co/RYuHhqrKt1

Forget actual rugby, the remaining teams should have a Jonah Lomu tournament to determine the winner of the Rugby World Cup.
Except nobody can pick New Zealand and there are no hand-offs allowed.
