Provincial Development Teams Update

8 Oct 2021

Kia Ora Harbour Community,

We hope you are safe and well.

We are unfortunately letting you know that North Harbour Rugby will not be re-assembling any of its Provincial Development teams in 2021.

With the uncertainty of current Alert levels, the de conditioning of our amateur players, the availability of all involved pushing further into spring, and potential issues facing facilities with the start of summer sports all contributed to our decision.

  • NHR Men’s Development
  • NHR Men’s U19
  • NHR Emerging Girls
  • NHR U18 Boys
  • Men’s 85’s

Obviously this is extremely disappointing for all involved most notably the players, management, and support staff. North Harbour Rugby is extremely grateful for the amount of time our volunteers put into leading these programs. To our player groups who could not wear the Hibiscus this year, we are very proud of the work you have put in throughout the current lockdown situation and the resilience you have shown by sticking to your training programs.

We were fortunate to run our inaugural U16 Emerging players program this year which had 80 boys representing 15 schools for 3 days throughout the July school holidays.

This program is the starting point for emerging players to engage with North Harbour Rugby both on and off the field. A big thanks to Recreational Services for their support of this program.

We look forward to providing these programs in 2022.
