Moana Pasifika Pays Tribute to Pacific Community Essential Workers

Moana Pasifika will kick off the new Super Rugby Pacific 2022 competition and their debut season with a home-game against the Brumbies in what promises to be a wonderful celebration of music, colour and Pasifika culture at Mt Smart Stadium.

In acknowledging the importance of their team for the Pasifika community, Moana Pasifika has paid tribute to all Pasifika essential and frontline workers – some of whom helped the team to announce their draw for next season.
