He made 44 appearances with the Chiefs and broke a record when he scored five tries in one game against the Waratahs. Wainui joined the Bay of Plenty this season.

Our thoughts are with Sean and his family, especially Paige, Kawariki, and Arabia. We will offer them our full support at what is a very difficult time for Sean and his family.” Sean’s death will be felt by many people because he played rugby. His teammates from the Bay of Plenty and Chiefs are sad because he died. Local media reported that Wainui was involved in a single-vehicle crash at McLaren Falls Park.
Police in the Bay of Plenty and Taupo said that a person died after they crashed their car into a tree at around 7:50 am (local time). The car that was driving by had one person in it. That person died at the scene. Police are not sure if the body has been formally identified. Clayton McMillan said this player is a good player. He has everything you want in a person.
He was a Māori who loved his family and worked hard. He is remembered as someone who loved playing with his team and had many fans. He was an important member of the teams he had been part of. And now, his presence will be missed. The Māori All Blacks is a team in New Zealand. They have a rule that everyone on this team must be Māori. That means they are different than the All Blacks, which is for international players.
