Tributes have been paid to former New Zealand international Sione Lauaki, who has died aged 35.

The cause of the retired forward's death has not been immediately revealed, but he was diagnosed with heart and kidney problems in 2012.

Lauaki earned 17 Test caps for his country and was a member of the 2007 New Zealand World Cup squad.

Tonga-born Lauaki made his All Blacks debut in 2005 - one year after starting out in Super Rugby for the Waikato Chiefs.

He played 70 times for the Chiefs before leaving in 2010 to continue his playing career in France for Bayonne and Clermont.
