Wellington are the current holders of the Hurricanes Shield, which is contested every year in the Hurricanes Region.
Wellington compete against Hawkes Bay Saracens, Manawatu Development, Wellington Samoans.
This competition has been going since 2009.
This team has a number of fixtures during the representative season designed to prepare and provide challenge to players who are looking for a spot in the Wellington Lions. Oftentimes players from this team will be called up as injury cover so must be game ready.
The Wellington Development team will not be playing in 2020 due to COVID-19 cancellations
