The 2010 Pacific Nations Cup was a rugby union tournament held between four national sides on the Pacific Rim: Fiji, Japan, Samoa and Tonga. The competition was won by Samoa.

The Junior All Blacks, the defending title holder, decided not to take part in this year's competition. The inaugural competition was held in 2006. This year the tournament began on June 12 and ended on June 26, 2010, with most of the matches hosted by Samoa. All matches except for a match between Fiji and Asian 5 Nations champion, Japan were played at Apia Park in Samoa.

The tournament was a round-robin where each team played all of the other teams once. The standard bonus points system was used to determine the overall winner—four points for a win, two for a draw and none for a defeat, plus single bonus points offered for scoring four or more tries in a match and losing by 7 points or fewer.
