They look like a brand new team with plenty of local young talent.
The season opener against the Auckland Supercity Rangers at Cowles Stadium is just under a month away with plenty of season passes already sold.
The core of local young talent will be bolstered by the return of the experienced Tony Tolovae to the Rams after a year with the Hawke's Bay Hawks.
He said he's more than ready to turn his focus on becoming a leader for the young side.
"I'm not really a veteran but in this team I feel I have to be."
