North’s Maori Rugby League was incorporated as a non-profit organization in September 2004. Since that time the club has proved to be successful both on the field and in the community. The results on the field have been hard fought with much hard work being done behind the scenes to make it all happen.
The concept is a great one where teams from “e nga hau e wha” the four winds come together to compete in a straight knockout tournament. NSW Maori Rugby League Inc. is the umbrella organization that is affiliated to New Zealand Maori Rugby League through New Zealand Rugby League.
North’s has been very fortunate to have the coaching services of Mark “horrible” Horo who has a great record before joining with North’s and has continued to keep that record with us. Mark communicates with each member of his team and guides them into becoming part of an overall structure that has made a big impression on North’s performance over the last three years.
In 2005 North's took out the tournament with an unprecedented score of 54 - 12 against Easts. In 2006 North's Maori Rugby League managed once again to make the Grand Final.
2007 saw North’s take a “clean sweep” winning the best haka as well as the grand final. It was a year that everything came together again off the field and transformed into dividends on the field.
In 2008 after a shaky start we were able to make the grand final and come away with another win. The competition is always tough and in 2008 again it was about sticking with the gameplan and completing the sets.
The 2009 tournament on Saturday October the 3rd promised and delivered some of the best spectacles in the game of league and Maori culture likely to be witnessed anywhere.
2010, 11, 12 and 13 has been dominant for Norths however the competition has always turned up on the day and have been a real handful for the side. Both the morning and afternoon games have shown how little there is between all of the sides in this tournament. The difference has been the character of the players and the ability of the coaching to identify exactly how and where than manifests and to draw that out from each and every player every single time and put it into practice at the right time in the most effective way.
