Despite mainly being shot in a swimming pool, the advert captures the importance of the Pacific to this competition.

With slow-motion shots of a rugby ball landing in the water, the advert is supplemented by having a host of big names from the southern hemisphere’s top club competition.

Stars like Crusaders’ Will Jordan, Brumbies’ Allan Ala’alatoa and Blues’ Caleb Clarke are all shown underwater scoring tries, handing off and carrying.

With the beautiful Fijian hymn Noqu Masu added to the visuals, this makes for a brilliant advert for Super Rugby Pacific ahead of the new season.
