  • Yeah, ‘cos that’s soooo much more important than the hundreds who died in the Paris attack.

      One News had a special at 5pm on Saturday and continued on until 8pm and 3News broke into regular programming on Saturday and had a special 12pm update. So what are you on about? Lomu did so much for the game of rugby and the extended coverage was warranted.
