Sherwin Stowers: 'I'd love to go back and have a go at
sevens if that opportunity came past.'
Discarded Blues wing Sherwin Stowers sees his future
overseas or in sevens after missing out on a Super Rugby
contract for 2013.
Stowers and Daniel Braid were two of the casualties following
the Blues' poor display in 2012, and Stowers said while going
overseas was a strong possibility, he was open to the idea of
committing to sevens.
Stowers had an impressive season in the ITM Cup to help
Counties Manukau win promotion to the Premiership.
"Absolutely I'd love to go back and have a go at sevens if
that opportunity came past, but I would have to think about
it if it did," he told Radio Sport.
Stowers said sevens would give him the opportunity to compete
for Olympics and Commonwealth gold "and also there's the
World Cup next year also, so definitely keen on that".
He said he had had a brief chat with New Zealand coach Gordon
Tietjens about upcoming tournaments but nothing was set in
stone, meaning heading overseas was a realistic option.
"That's one of the discussions that we've had. Ideally I'd
love to stay here but it hasn't panned out that way."
