Representing the central regions of New Zealand, the Hurricanes’ catchment area stretches from the Cook Strait beaches to the tip of the Eastern Cape on the eastern coastal flank of the North Island. New Zealand’s most populous franchise, in terms of contributing member unions, the Hurricanes fly the flag for nine provincial unions based in the lower and central North Island: Wellington, Wairarapa-Bush, Horowhenua-Kapiti, Manawatu, Wanganui, Taranaki, Hawke’s Bay, Poverty Bay and East Coast.
