One NZ Warriors

NRL season launch film for the NZ Warriors featuring Luke Whaanga

The One NZ Warriors ply their trade in the NRL as the only team representing an entire nation up against all their foes based in Australia.

After two Covid-ravaged seasons in which the Warriors were based across the ditch away from family, friends and their loyal supporters in 2023 it was time to come home. Working with SEN, we brought the power of sport and music together in a celebration that would create an anthem for Warriors players and fans alike to get behind.  Written and performed by local artist Luke Whaanga, “Ukaipo” meaning “Home” captured the hearts of everyone associated with the Warriors whanau / family. Featuring the many faces of club legends, players, officials and fans we traveled across NZ to create an emotional bedrock for the launch of their homecoming season.
