A North Harbour Rugby registration form will be sent home and is required to be completed before the first tournament.
Places in teams may be limited depending on numbers.
Team fees: ALL players are asked to pay $10 to cover the cost of team registration and $15 to cover the cost of buses to and from the tournaments.
This will be due once teams are confirmed.
