Meet the Team

The NZMRL board and staff are a voluntary team that has a strong focus on the development and growth of Maori Rugby League. The passion we have for our kaupapa is what drives us! 

NZ Maori Rugby League 


The NZMRL have four annual Rugby League Tournaments that cater for Juniors (Teina) right through to Seniors (Tuakana). These tournaments are held in different Rohe and attract a huge number of players/whanau from all over the motu and Australia. Our tournaments were established to nurture the passion and aspirations of Maori rugby league players.
