Kia ora and welcome to the start of another exciting rugby season for 2022!

A big NX greeting to all the new Y7 players and their parents to NX-we have high hopes for another successful season with NX entering several tournaments and grades (dependent on numbers.) Below are the dates for this season's school rugby so kids, please make sure you timetable these dates into your HW Diary so you are mega organised and are showing excellent time management skills! Please stay on top of your schoolwork and make sure your behaviour is of the highest standard. Northcross expects all players and parents to represent themselves, your family, the school and the community in an exceptional manner. This season is going to be a very busy one with plenty of new and exciting tournaments on. 

Finally, a reminder to all players and parents that the selection of players is very difficult given the quality of players and numbers here at Northcross. If you miss training/meetings without letting us know then that is one way we cut down the squads. Please always listen to and read the This Day Notices and constantly read them each day! 

A player's position in any team will be determined by the coach of that team and where he/she feels the player best serves the TEAM. It is very important that players and parents are aware of this before making the decision to play. Please refer to and read our Sports Selection Policies on the School Website and Code of Conduct Form.

Terms 1 and  2 we will start trialing/selecting our squads for the season. The teams you can trial for are as follows:

  • NH Champs Zone Day U45kg Boys (15 aside)

  • NH Champs Zone Day U55kg (15 aside)

  • Open Weight Boys (15 aside) 

  • NH Girls 7’s Zone Day (Open Weight and U57kg)

  • Auckland Champs (if we qualify.)

  • Pre AIMS 7’s Tournaments (x2) Boys (and Girls if we have an AIMS Open Weight Team)

  • Boys AIMS Open Weight 7’s Team (and Girls if numbers and interest are strong)

In 2022 we will again be sending a Boys Open Weight 7’s Teams to the NZCT AIMS Sporting Championships in Tauranga. Interest and numbers will determine whether or not we send a Girls Rugby 7’s Team to AIMS.
