All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu has admitted he and his family may ditch New Zealand and move to the UK.

In an interview with London's Evening Standard, the 63-test veteran said he was "definitely looking at" relocating his family to England because his sons had "fallen in love with the place".

"Our five and six year olds said, 'hey dad, can you go home and get the dogs?' I said, 'why?' and they said 'we want to live here'," Lomu said.

The rugby legend is touring the country with his wife Nadene and their sons Dhyreille, five, and Brayley, six, doing promotional work and enjoying a family holiday.

Some of Lomu's best on-field exploits were against England, including at the 1995 Rugby World Cup where he scored four tries in the All Blacks' 45-29 semifinal triumph.

Lomu has lived in the UK before. In 2005 - a year after receiving a kidney transplant - Lomu signed on with Cardiff.

Lomu is backing the men in black as they prepare to take on the Wallabies in the Rugby World Cup final tomorrow morning.

"It's going to be a fantastic final and it's going to be something that all rugby fans will be proud to be a part of. It's been the most successful Rugby World Cup in history," he told the Standard.

"They can rewrite history [by winning two consecutive World Cups]. It would be absolutely amazing. I would be one of the happiest guys."
