The Wellington Hurricanes were the 2016 Super Rugby Champions, defeating the Lions from South Africa 20 points to 3, claiming the clubs first title in the 20 seasons of the competition.

History

Born out of the advent of professional rugby at the end of 1995, nine New Zealand provincial rugby unions came together to form the Wellington Hurricanes for the start of the inaugural Super 12 competition in 1996. 

The Wellington, Taranaki, Manawatu, Hawke's Bay, East Coast, Poverty Bay, Wanganui, Wairarapa-Bush and Horowhenua-Kapiti unions all formed the Hurricanes region. 

The new franchise was the largest of the five in New Zealand, representing 920,000 people and has provided 20 seasons of spectacular highlights.
