The Wellington Hurricanes have rebranded to the Wellington Durricanes after they signed a sponsorship deal with Winfield Blue for the next three years.
After half the team decided to take up smoking in 2018, sponsors jumped the at opportunity to encourage players and fans to smoke more Nicotine.
The Cake Tin has taken away their smoke free status and there will be pop-up Cigarette stalls through the concourse. This will allow fans to embrace
the new team name change.
Some sporting teams have a smokescreen / Fog machine before games kick off, but now the Durricanes will walk out to the stadium with a fog machine
puffing out nicotine smoke onto the field.
Players are said to be nervous about the state of their lungs but new team Doctor Jesse Ryder doesn’t think there is any need for concern
