has been appointed to our Player & Coach Development team. Dean is
a primary school teacher by profession and in recent years completed a
Diploma in Sports Management. Dean has been in sports management roles
in recent years including SENZ training co-ordination, coaching and
development in North Harbour and as a YMCA programme manager. Dean has
played representative rugby through age group rugby up to NPC level and
has representative status in several other sports. Dean brings
experience and in-depth knowledge in rugby development for junior and
teenage rugby and sports management in general. He will be responsible
for primary school rugby development. Dean is replacing Hannah who has
now assumed the full time role of Professional Development Manager.
Warwick Fenton has been appointed to a new role as School Liaison Officer. Warwick comes from a Secondary School teaching background with extensive rugby involvement in coaching and administration most recently at Rangitoto and Whangaparaoa Colleges. Warwick has worked in secondary schools in the Waikato and greater Auckland regions for many years and has been involved at a high level in secondary school sports governance in rugby, athletics and cross country both regionally and nationally. He was instrumental in setting up the “Clubs in Schools” programme and in developing programmes to harness volunteers in school sporting programmes as NCEA absorbed a greater part of teachers’ time. Warwick has also been involved in initiatives for the development of junior talent programmes and academies at schools. Warwick’s role is similar to that of the Club Liaison Officer and the school liaison role is seen as essential in taking teenage and age group rugby forward in North Harbour to provide improved programmes and opportunities in secondary school rugby and to improve the transition of players back into club rugby upon leaving school.
Warwick will be starting on 25th February and Dean the 10th March.
The following North Harbour referees have overseas travel coming up.
Steve Walsh has just left for England and will be refereeing the international between England and France in two weeks time.
Glenn Newman is off to the Hong Kong 10's and 7’s in March for the inaugural North Harbour and Hong Kong Referees exchange scheme. After years of negotiating this wonderful opportunity for our local referees it has now been signed off. Thanks go to Danny Meade, Membership Convenor for NHRRA, an ex Hong Kong referee in brokering the deal.
These are some of the many opportunities available if you choose to become a referee for North Harbour.

The victorious New Zealand Sevens team returned from the United States this week with a new record after its 27–12 win against South Africa in the final of the USA Sevens over the weekend.
The final win in San Diego was the team’s 36th match victory in a row in the IRB Sevens Series, surpassing the previous record of 34, set by New Zealand during the 2001/2002 season. New Zealand has not lost a game in the IRB Sevens Series since a semi-final loss against Fiji in the Adelaide round of the 2006/2007 season.
The victory in San Diego was also the team’s sixth consecutive tournament win – their fourth in a row in the 2007/2008 season and adding to the tournament wins in London and Edinburgh at the end of last season where they clinched a record seventh IRB Sevens Series win.
