Winston is the younger brother of Benson Stanley, proving to be an aggressive tackler and an outstanding provider of quality ball to his outsides. A member of the World Cup winning New Zealand Under-20 side, Stanley made his debut for the Blues in 2009 after being selected in the Wider Training Group.

Surgery on both his shoulders ruled him out of action for the Blues in 2010, but after impressing in his return for Auckland in the ITM Cup this year, he was included in the full Blues squad for the first time in 2011.
