The Moana Pasifika played their maiden match on Saturday against the Māori All Blacks at FMG Stadium.
The Māori All Blacks won the friendly game by 28-21.
There has been much talk about whether they should be named the sixth New Zealand Sky Sport Super Rugby side or whether they should play just play against the Māori All Blacks annually.
They intend to join Super Rugby in 2022.
The squad is made up of players eligible for the national teams of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, although one test All Black Josh Ioane starred in the No 10 jersey.
From 2004-2008 a similar team was put together called the Pacific Islanders. In 2004, players were also supplied from the Niuean and Cook Islands teams.
Former All Blacks and Waikato players Sione Lauaki and Sitiveni Sivivatu played for this team.
The following XV is a team of former Waikato players who represented a Pacific nation or were eligible to between 1987-2019.
Greg Smith, Deacon Manu, Ilaitia Savai and Dominiko Waqaniburotu have all captained Fiji, while Jack Lam has captained Samoa.
