Cape Town - The wife of former All Blacks superstar,

For much of the 1990s Small and Lomu were the dominant wings in world rugby.

Lomu terrorised defences at the 1995 World Cup, scoring an unforgettable four tries in the semi-final against England at Newlands.

However, in his 63 Tests, none of his 37 tries were scored against the Springboks - something Small had a major hand in ensuring.

Equally tragically, Lomu died in late 2015 at the age of 40.

On Thursday, Lomu's wife Nadene too to Twitter to pay an emotional tribute to Small.

She posted a picture of Lomu and Small in conversation at Ellis Park and called the pair "legends".
