The squad is headlined by former All Blacks outside back, Rico Gear (19 Tests), and former Chiefs hooker and Samoan captain Mahonri Schwalger (40 Tests), who will start in the front row.

The team features Test internationals Taniela Koroi (Fiji) Michael Little (Fiji), Junior Poluleuligaga (Samoa) and Hale T-Pole (Tonga), as well as former Maori All Blacks fullback Willy Walker and ex-New Zealand Sevens representative, Onosai Auva’a. ,
