Sean Wainui is one of the young guns joining the BNZ Crusaders squad for the first time in 2016. At just 20 years of age, he is an exciting young talent with an abundance of potential.
Wainui is a former Takapuna Grammar First XV captain. Although straight out of school, Taranaki Coach Colin Cooper saw enough in Wainui to contract him for his provincial team and he has not disappointed.
Wainui has had a small taste for Super Rugby through some time in the Chiefs development side. He was also selected in the Maori All Blacks in 2015.
