Senior Club Committee and Management

From the President 

Commonly referred to as "The Pride", North Shore epitomises all that is wonderful at the club level of rugby. An environment that encourages the involvement of families and friends in a club that is both highly competitive and proud of the progress it provides for its young players.

From the Chairman 

After being a founding club in the Auckland RFU we were a strong supporter for North Harbour to be formed. We provided the first president in Jim Stuart and the first captain in Wayne "Buck" Shelford. In joining the "Pride" you follow a great tradition of success, enjoyment and involvement second to none. People come and they go but they always come back.

Prospective players and parents are invited to discuss with the club how we might help them fit football and work or studies into next season. We have substantial contacts in the North Harbour region and these have provided to be invaluable in assisting the transition from school to work or varsity environment.
