The South Pacific Raiders Rugby League and Sports club (SPRLSC) was established in 1994 in Dunedin, New Zealand as a stand-alone rugby league team. In the past 20 years, however, it has grown to include basketball, touch, softball, volleyball and netball teams, hence the name change to the South Pacific Rugby League and Sports Club. SPRLSC have a unique demographic base and some very strong connections with different areas of the Dunedin community (University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic, Māori, Pacific Islands). We pride ourselves on being a whānau-oriented club.
Dr Gianna Leoni (Ngāti Kurī, Ngāi Takoto, Te Aupōuri), previously a lecturer at Te Tumu: School of Māori, Pacific & Indigenous Studies at the University of Otago, is now a Senior Data Analyst at Te Hiku Media.
