We are proud of our rugby programme at Mahurangi College. Year 9-13 students can join a range of boys’ and girls’ tackle and non-contact rugby teams for the winter season, and enter a Seven’s tournament in term 3. The 1st XV in addition to normal season draws, play Orewa College annually for the highly contested Murray Jones Shield, and have the opportunity to participate in long standing exchanges with Hauraki Plains and Mt Roskill during the year. Our teams may also compete in tournaments or games during Secondary Schools Winter Tournament week in September.
Our Year 7 and 8 students are included within the North Harbour Rugby Junior programme and can register with the Mahurangi Junior Rugby Club to participate in rugby through the winter season. The College selects and enters teams to play in the North Harbour Zone Days and the AIMS Games in September.
We'd like to thank all our community sponsors for their ongoing support of rugby at Mahurangi College.
