LOMU ON THE MARKET: The Sunday news leads today with an exclusive report that rugby superstar Jonah Lomu is on the market. As the All Blacks prepare for the World Cup, Jonah Lomu has been put on the world player market. Last week the London Club Saracens rejected the $1.7 million-a-season asking price. Lomu is said to be making the move because he wants more time on the field and the decision coincides with All Black coach John Hart's decision to confine Lomu to a part-time role in the All Blacks.
