The New Caledonia national rugby union team represents New Caledonia in rugby union. The team has been playing international rugby since the 1960s. All their matches have been against other teams from Oceania.[1][2]

New Caledonia has competed at the South Pacific Games, winning a silver medal in 1966.[3] The team won the gold medal in 1987, defeating Cook Islands in the final in Noumea.[4] More recently, the team has played for the FORU Oceania Cup. In 2008, their win over fellow Pacific rivals Vanuatu in Nouméa, 32–20, paved their way to the final of the competition, but New Caledonia lost the match to Niue, 5–27.[5][6]
