DHL Super Rugby Pacific Pre-Season 2023 Fixtures


Six preseason games are planned in New Zealand in February 2023, giving rugby fans the chance to experience the thrill of DHL Super Rugby Pacific from Queenstown to Auckland.

The Super Rugby Pacific preseason 2023 campaign will begin with Highlanders vs. Crusaders on February 10, 2023, in Weston, with the Farmlands Cup on the line. The Crusaders won the Farmlands Cup in 2021, defeating the Highlanders 28–26 in a thriller at Temuka. Due to COVID-19, the preseason game last year was not a Farmlands Cup, but the Highlanders still prevailed (20-19) on a very muddy and rainy field, and they will be eager to repeat their triumph from 2022.

On the same day, Moana Pasifika will face the Gallagher Chiefs at Mount Smart Stadium on February 10, 2023. It will be a rematch of Moana Pasifika's first preseason game in 2022 when they were defeated 61-7 by the Gallagher Chiefs. Moana Pasifika will be looking to build on their 2022 pre-season performance against the Gallagher Chiefs and make an early statement now that they have played a season of DHL Super Rugby Pacific.

The following day, on Saturday, February 11, the Blues take on the Hurricanes at the Waitemata Rugby Football Club. The "Blues Cup" "Game of Three Halves" featuring North Harbour, Northland, and Auckland development players will be followed by the inaugural NAB Blues women's open training session, followed by the Blues men vs. Hurricanes pre-season encounter. The gates will open at 11 a.m.
