The new Super Rugby team is taking its name seriously, reveals The Spinoff, especially when it comes to uniforms. When you see Moana Pasifika play at Mount Smart Stadium in Tāmaki Makaurau it looks like a sea of blue on the field. The team’s home jerseys are boldly coloured and adorned with various tatau, masi, ngatu, hiapo and tapa patterns of the Pacific region. But it’s not just colours: the team, through Dynasty Sport’s pro teamwear programme, is on track to repurpose in excess of 12 million plastic bottles this year – their Ecotek fabric jerseys are made from recycled plastic bottles.
