Steelers bring back Nanai-Seturo for 2022

Chiefs and All Blacks Sevens star Etene Nanai-Seturo has signed a new deal that will ensure he remains a PIC Steeler for the 2022 National Provincial Championship.

The electric try-scoring flyer has played for Counties Manukau throughout his professional career, starting with the Union in 2018 in the same season he made his All Blacks Sevens debut.

The 22-year-old has played for the Chiefs in Super Rugby since 2019 and last year added an Olympic silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics to his Commonwealth Games gold medal.

“I’m really happy to re-sign with the PIC Steelers and continue playing my provincial rugby here,” Nanai-Seturo said.

“This his home for me – it was great to be able to play a little club rugby this year with Karaka and I really enjoyed that.

“I love the culture we have within the group and I’m looking forward to joining my brothers in the coming weeks.”

Nanai-Seturo is the eighth Super Rugby player to be confirmed in the 2022 PIC Steelers squad joining Alamanda Motuga, Jonathan Taumateine, Alex McRobbie, Sam Slade, Ezekiel Lindenmuth, Viliame Rarasea and Zuriel Togiatama as well as club stand-outs Peniasi Malimali and Steven Leavasa and former Irish international Sean Reidy.

The PIC Steelers begin their 2022 campaign with home game against Otago on Saturday August 6.
