Sevens star re-signs with Steelers

1:03 pm on 24 December 2009

The Counties-Manukau winger and New Zealand sevens star Sherwin Stowers has re-signed with the Steelers for three years.

The 23-year-old student was the leading try scorer in the Dubai Sevens tournament and played a key instrumental role in New Zealand's wins there and at George in South Africa.

Stowers says he's chosen to stay with Counties, despite offers from some high profile unions.

He says Counties gave him a chance and the Steelers have a young talented team he wants to see progress.
