The rugby community is mourning the death of Sean Wainui.

Wainui was a supremely young talented player for the Chiefs, Taranaki, Bay of Plenty, Maori All Blacks and captain of the Takapuna 1st XV.

He died in a single-car crash near McLaren Falls in Tauranga aged 25.

He wrote himself into the record books in June when he became the first player to score five tries in a Super Rugby match.

Taranaki coach Neil Barnes joined Andrew Dickens.
