Jonah expressed his delight in being invited to play once again for Barbarians and commented,
“When ever I get asked to play for the Barbarians I consider it a privilege and accept to play at every opportunity. It also gives me a chance to visit my favourite part of the World, where I also receive a great deal of support from the fans, which makes it extra special. At the moment I’m concentrating 100% to help the Hurricanes make the Super 12 top four.”
