ESPN review of Moana Pasifika 2022
Led by Head Coach Aaron Mauger and Captain, Sekope Kepu, they were always going to have a difficult debut season, add in COVID, lack of time together and the youthfulness of the squad, it all resulted in just two wins in an admirable season.
One year wiser and with plenty of trials and tribulations under their belt, Moana Pasifika enter the 2023 season no longer behind the eight ball. Eying a top eight finish, Aaron Mauger is expecting plenty from his side,
So expect some excitement from young new signings with loose forward Miracle Fai’ilagi getting plenty of praise from co-captain Christian Leali’ifano, while 25-year-old Timoci Tavatavanawai is sure to be a handful on the edge.
Add in a game in Apia for the first time for Pasifika and there’s plenty to be excited about this year.
