In a heart-wrenching piece of news, New Zealand player Sean Wainui has lost his life succumbing to injury caused due to a car crash. Sean was married to Paige and also left behind two children. The rugby player is of Maori descent and made ten appearances for the Maori All Blacks. Wainui also played forty-four games for Waikato Chiefs.
He was an influential member in the teams he has been a part of and his presence will be missed. He epitomised everything you could possibly ask for in a player. He will be remembered for being a passionate, hard-working, proud Maori who was an exceptional player but more importantly father and husband.
