Rumors Claim All Blacks Star Sean Wainui’s Suicide Caused His Death
There are many rumors claiming that New Zealand rugby union player Sean Wainui’s suicide caused his death on October 18, 2021, at the young age of 25. May he rest in peace.
On Tuesday, the coroner Louella Dunn confirmed that the death following a vehicle accident is probably a suspected suicide. Sean Wainui leaves behind his wife Paige and their two children.
The heartbreaking news was first confirmed in a post to social media by his wife Paige, writing, “I don’t have the words right now or could begin to describe the feeling of losing you baby all I know is I don’t wish this on anyone.”
She then added as a heartwarming tribute, saying, “I’m in absolute pieces and in so much pain knowing my whole other half to me has left this earth … but I will forever celebrate you my love for being the most amazing and incredible husband and father you were and the special years we got to spend together on this earth.”
The young star lost his life on Monday, October 18, in what police described as a single-vehicle accident. Authorities reported that the Super Rugby player’s car hit a tree at McLaren Falls Park near Tauranga on the North Island.
Sean was one of the great stars in Super Rugby, appearing in his first game in the competition for the Crusaders in 2016 before entering the Chiefs in 2018. The center and occasional winger starred in 44 appearances for the Hamilton-based club, scoring 90 points. He also signed for the NPC team Bay of Plenty in May for the 2021 provincial rugby season.

The late star’s wife continued in her statement, “But I will forever celebrate you, my love, for being the most amazing and incredible husband and father you were and the special years we got to spend together on this earth. I’m going to cherish these forever. We were soul mates. You were the most beautiful person on this earth with so much mana and character who treated me like an absolute queen. Our love was love very few get to feel in this lifetime, a love I never thought I would be able to find, but thanks to you, I did.”
Wainui came at the center of the spotlight earlier this year when he became the first Super Rugby player to score five tries in a single match in the Chiefs’ one-sided victory against the Waratahs in Sydney.
In a statement last week, New Zealand Rugby announced it was a “dark day” for the game. “Our thoughts are with Sean and his whānau [family], particularly Paige, Kawariki, and Arahia, and we offer them our full support at what is the most difficult of times,” NZR chief executive Mark Robinson said.
“We know Sean’s passing will be felt deeply by everyone involved in rugby, particularly his Bay of Plenty and Chiefs teammates, and we share their sorrow and their shock.”
