    If Moana Pasifika is to be added into the Super Rugby competition then it can't just become a sixth New Zealand franchise

    If Moana Pasifika is to be added into the Super Rugby competition then it can't just become a sixth New Zealand franchise


    That's the view of All Blacks great Sir Michael Jones as Moana Pasifika prepares to face the Maori All Blacks in Hamilton tonight.

    The team is hopeful of featuring in Super Rugby from 2022 and Jones says it's vital it's used to benefit the Fijian, Samoan and Tongan national teams who are currently outside the world's top 10.
