On March 18, 2023, at 08:35 UTC, the Brumbies Moana Pasifika Super Rugby – Rugby Union match at GIO Stadium Canberra stadium, Canberra city, Australia, will begin.
When Christian Leali’ifano plays against his former team on Saturday night in Canberra for the first time as a Moana Pasifika player, tensions will be high.
Leali’ifano is unquestionably a Brumbies legend. He has 150 caps for the team and only two other players have led more matches. In addition, in 2017 he made an emotional comeback after beating leukemia.

The five-eighth will now travel to GIO Stadium hoping to end his old team’s unblemished start to the Super Rugby Pacific season. The player had previously signed with Japanese rugby before switching to the Pasifika team more recently.
It was strange, according to Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham, to try to silence the 35-year-old who means so much to the team.
“He’s special to this club and special to his community, so it’s fantastic to see him back in Canberra. Just having someone like him back in our town is fantastic,”said he. All Blacks Rugby game online
