Veteran sevens star and Crusaders flanker Dallas Seymour has boosted Bay of Plenty's NPC challenge by announcing he will be joining them this season.

The Steamers, coached by New Zealand sevens coach Gordon Tietjens, won promotion from the second division last season and need all the help and experience they can get as they seek to maintain their status as a first division side.

33 year old Seymour, has been loaned to the Bay by the Canterbury union as surplus to their requirements in 2001.He has played more than 170 first-class matches for Hawke's Bay, Wellington and Canterbury in the NPC and the Hurricanes and Crusaders in Super 12. But it is as a sevens player that he has really made his name, having spent 13 years as a member of the highly successful New Zealand squad, 10 of them under the direction of Tietjens.Seymour was a member of the gold medal-winning side at the Commonwealth Games in 1998.
