Kia ora, good evening and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Super Rugby Pacific clash between Moana Pasifika and Hurricanes at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium.

You probably can't see these two teams on a fixture list without casting you mind back to their first-ever meeting at this same venue on this very day last season, when the then-expansion side notched up their first victory at this level.

The Pacific Islanders only won two games in their inaugural campaign - they also toppled top Aussies ACT Brumbies - and have yet to taste victory so far this year.

Which just means the Hurricanes are ripe for another ambush.

The team from the capital have lost just once, bowing to the Blues without suspended captain Ardie Savea. This week, they line up without All Blacks Tyrel Lomax, Dane Coles and Jordie Barrett - all on national team rest - so they are vulnerable.

Join us at 7pm for kickoff.
