20th Aug 1999 1.83m/92kg Left Wing

Nanai-Seturo is a former age-grade rugby league standout in Auckland.

In 2018 he was called up to the New Zealand 7s squad, at the age of 18 and made his 7s debut in Sydney.

Sydney was not the first time he pulled a national jersey on having represented New Zealand at schoolboy level in 2017.

Nanai-Seturo was contracted by Rugby League side Warriors but the contract has been cancelled after a ruling stating that it was not legally binding as he was 15-years old when signing the deal.

After some debate, New Zealand Rugby and Warriors came to an agreement and the exciting youngster signed a deal with the NZRU.

Reports suggest that he will sign a deal with Super Rugby side the Chiefs after two stellar 7s tournaments in Sydney and Hamilton.

Nanai-Seturo signed a deal with Counties Manukau for the 2018 Mitre 10 Cup. Following the conclusion of the Mitre 10 Cup, he was named in the Chiefs' 2019 Super Rugby squad.

Nanai-Seturo has been named for the Chiefs squad ahead of the 2020 Super Rugby season. He has obtained 11 caps so far and will be looking at extending this.
