    Lomu jumps on Sevens bandwagon

    The International Rugby Board are calling in a heavyweight as they prepare for their final push to get sevens included in the Olympic programme for 2016.

    Jonah Lomu will travel to Copenhagen with IRB president Bernard Lapasset, IRB secretary general Mike Miller and other international rugby stars for the decisive vote to determine the sports that will be added to the programme in seven years' time.

    Sevens, along with golf, was recommended for inclusion by the International Olympic Committee executive board at their meeting in Berlin in August and the two sports now face separate votes by the full 106-member congress in the Danish capital this weekend. A straight majority is all that is required for inclusion in 2016.
