From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 19 October 2021

Māori All Black Sean Wainui is being remembered as a player with immense mana both on and off the field.

The 25-year-old father died in a car crash yesterday morning at McLaren Falls Park, near Tauranga.

Earlier this year, Wainui became the first player in Super Rugby history to score five tries in one game.

New Zealand Māori Rugby Board chair Dr Farah Palmer spoke to Susie Ferguson.
