At 23, Danny Drake already has 5 x Championship titles under his belt:
- 2 at Westlake Boys' High School with the 7th and 4th XV's (astoundingly he never played 1st XV)
- 1 with Northcote U21s
- 2 back to back titles with Northcote Prems in 2017 and 2018.
In 2016 He caught the eye of the QBE North Harbour senior coaching staff and has been part of the Harbour Wider Training Group and Pathways Programmes since then, and QBE North Harbour head Coach Tom Coventry said his attitude, willingness to learn and take advice has proven him to be an outstanding example of the North Harbour Pathways Programme.
"The programme is designed to develop and select players from within the province who have earnt the right to wear the jersey. Danny is one of 6 players from this programme selected for this years Mitre 10 Cup squad, the squad which has gone undefeated in their last 12 outings (which included The Blues) so it shows that its working."
