Should Jonah be going to Cardiff or should he give rugby up? Some think Jonah should accept the passing of the years and find new goals however, Jonah is determined to play. Does Jonah leave New Zealand with some hurt over comments about his loyalty to New Zealand and our bid for 2011 Rugby World Cup?
