He Piringa Pāua - Loyalty and Allegiance
The 2022 Gallagher Chiefs Away Jersey design utilizes the vibrant colouring of the pāua shell and is inspired by the Māori axiom:
‘Ka haere te pāua ki te toka, he piringa pāua - The pāua will go to the rock and cling to it fiercely.’
Denoting that even when the team plays away from home, it will always return just as the pāua returns to the rock if dislodged.
Like the Home Jersey the flowing kōwhaiwhai (ornate swirls) represent connecting waterways which will always carry the team back home.
