Mā pango mā whero, ka oti te mahi; with black with red, we will achieve.

We’re here to do good for each other. Welcoming others into our whānau, building belonging in something that’s more than rugby. It’s family. But every member of this family works hard, so we can get through those hard times, together.

Enabling people to enjoy themselves, to be themselves, and to believe in themselves. Because you’ve got be able to enjoy it, to celebrate those moments when all the hard work pays off.

True to yourself, selfless for others. Proud individuals, connected to a common cause.

Leading in our sport, and in our community. Proud of what we have to share with our fans and the world. Showing the world what ‘team’ can really mean. Representing our legacy, as well as a way forward for the future.

The collective strength of our six unions. Encompassing the mountains and plains of the top of the south island. A reflection of the passion and pride of our fans, gaining strength from their support and giving it back.

This is who we are. And this is what drives our success. We are for each other. Winning rugby is just the result.

Mā pango mā whero, ka oti te mahi; with black with red, we will achieve.
