Seach on for NZRL Zone DirectorsSeach on for NZRL Zone Directors

NZRL is seeking applications for board directors on behalf of an independent appointments panel that manages the recruitment process across the country’s seven administrative zones.

All board positions are for a term of three years.

Rugby league is a sport for all New Zealanders, played at the grassroots and on the international stage.

The sport is “more than just a game” – it is part of the social fabric of our country, and has a critical role in developing young men and women in some of our most “at risk” communities.

The game’s domestic governance model is based on seven geographic zones:

  • Northland
  • Akarana (comprising North Harbour, Waitakere & Auckland Central)
  • Counties-Manukau
  • Upper Central (comprising Bay of Plenty, Gisborne & Waikato)
  • Mid Central (comprising Hawke’s Bay, Manawatu, Taranaki & Wanganui)
  • Wellington
  • Southern (entire South Island)

The independent appointments panel is charged with ensuring the zone boards have collective skills and experience in commerce, finance and marketing. Board members will also need to have effective decision-making skills, well-developed relationship-management skills and sound judgement.

The boards are responsible for ensuring sound governance practices and processes, and setting clear goals and measurable targets within the sport of rugby league in New Zealand.

Applications forms can be downloaded here.

All applications will be treated in strict confidence and must include a CV, covering letter and a completed application form.

Applications close 5pm, Monday, March 9.

In another action packed game the 18s put on a display of speed and power.  The Muriwhenua Kuaka were the form team going into the final.  However, finals are all about the day, the event and the emotion.

Marist were able to capture the emotion in a positive manner.  Marist Brothers were lead forward by powerhouse back-row James Fisher-Harris, but it was a display of team work that confirmed the title for Marist, with tries being shared on both the left and right side and by the pack.

The Muriwhenua team showed glimpses of their brilliance and flair coming alive with 20 minutes left to play.  They bought the deficit back to 6 points, but Marist had answers to their every move finally locking out the game 34 – 26.

Marist Brothers – 34:  Tries:  Ben Munro, Soko Malalua, Pana Matiu, Michael Slade, James Fisher Harris, Justin Koia.  Goals:  Pana Matiu (2), Shae Currie (3)

Muriwhenu Kuaka – 26: Kapene Ripokoi, Nopera Matthews, Peter Smith, Homish Pomare, Allan Heighway.  Goals:  Kerisitiano Arona (2), Michael Larkin
