Tana Umaga is no stranger to public life – former Hurricanes player, All Blacks captain and now assistant coach of the Blues.

But he and his wife Rochelle have kept their family and private life away from the spotlight.

However, a new venture is seeing them open up on the next chapter in their life.

The Umaga’s have created Viktual+, a new wellness brand, harnessing traditional Maori and Pacific plants.

It stems from Tana and Rochelle reconnecting with their culture and a desire to create a healthier future for their people.

Tana and Rochelle joined Francesca Rudkin in studio to discuss their new venture.
