Last week the 28-year-old starred for Bay of Plenty in Rotorua, after putting his hand up to get in a bit more game time.
He was a constant menace in attack for his side, even scoring a hat-trick in BoP’s Cup defeat to Taranaki.
That loss consigned them to the Plate division, but again his class was on display early as he crossed for a try only 30 seconds into the semi-final match.
BoP steamrolled Manawatu in that clash, 26-7, and squared off against Auckland in the Plate final.
Stanaway opened the scoring in the final when he was put into space near halfway, put a kick in for himself, raced around the defender, regathered and scored in the corner.
After half-time he dotted down once again after time to cement the 31-7 rout.
Sydney will be Stanaway’s second consecutive tournament for the All Blacks Sevens side, after he featured in four games at the Cape Town leg, which New Zealand eventually won 38-14 against Argentina.
All Blacks Sevens squad: Kurt Baker, Caleb Clarke, Scott Curry, Sam Dickson, Andrew Knewstubb, Vilimoni Koroi, Luke Masirewa, Tim Mikkelson, Sione Molia, Joe Ravouvou, Teddy Stanaway, Regan Ware, Joe Webber.
