Sean Wainui will have tributes paid to him this weekend.

The Chiefs centre died aged 25 in a car accident at McLaren Falls in Tauranga.

Bay of Plenty's match against Northland will be postponed as it clashes with his tangihanga.

The All Blacks' clash against the US in Washington, D,C. will also start with a minute's silence for Wainui.

Sam Whitelock will captain the team for the remaining All Blacks test this year.
