SYDNEY, Dec. 9 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --

Jonah Lomu is 5-1 (6.00) with Centrebet to represent the All Blacks in the 2007

Lomu is set to play his first game for six months when Cardiff Blues tackle
Calvisano tomorrow.

"You should never write off a champ and Jonah is a great one," says Centrebet's
Gerard Daffy.

Centrebet is offering odds of 50-1 (51.00) that Kiwi beauty Kay Anderson
becomes Miss World.

Filipino contestant Carlene Aguilar is Centrebet's 4-1 (5.00) favourite to win
