New Zealand's two-point semifinal victory 'too close for comfort' for All Blacks' legend Jonah Lomu

— -- Former All Black Jonah Lomu said New Zealand's two-point semi-final victory over South Africa was "too close for comfort", but said the "boys looked comfortable".

The All Blacks secured their fourth Rugby World Cup final spot after they came from behind to take down the Springboks, but despite the shaky start the All Blacks' legend said the experience of the players helped them pull through.

"It was a bit too close for comfort at certain stages there, but the boys looked comfortable. It was just a bit uncomfortable for anybody who was watching it.

"We play against South Africa quite often now; they know what they do, so you expected that [it would be a tight game]. It was always going to be a hard fought battle.

"I guarantee when the World Cup final is on, no one will be working; the whole country will be at a standstill."
