​The Blues have announced that Northland will host their Super Rugby Pacific competition clash against the Melbourne Rebels on Saturday 5 March 2022 at Whangarei’s Semenoff Stadium. 

Blues CEO, Andrew Hore thanked Northland Rugby Union and Whangarei District Council for their “tremendous support to enable us to bring this fixture to life in front of a full stadium of our Northland fans.“

Whangarei District Council Venues and Events Manager Carina de Graaf said the Blues have a special place in Northlanders’ hearts. 

“Watching our local players representing the Blues on their home turf is the ultimate experience and hosting a Super Rugby game is a significant achievement for the region.

“This event will be huge for our community. The timing is perfect for whānau and allows plenty of travel time. It will be beneficial to the local business community, who have greatly suffered over the last couple of years. We can’t wait to see Whangārei full of visitors that weekend enjoying our cafes, restaurants and beaches.”
