The Club
The Mahurangi Rugby Club prides itself on having ¨that old fashioned¨ rugby culture where everybody is welcomed and the rugby is played hard and physical. With the friendly spirit of both club members and the community, Mahurangi is the ideal place to play rugby and make new friends. In the past few years we have fielded a Premier Team (the top team) a Senior 1st (the second team) and an under 19 team, in the North Harbour competition. We will be looking to do so again in 2009. We are also very interested in forming other teams in other divisions such as under 21´s, under 85´s and a female rugby team. As well as senior rugby we also have a very strong junior club which in 2008 fielded nine teams from J8 through to J1. If you are interested in playing rugby in any of these grades with the Mahurangi Rugby Club, feel free to contact one of our Committee Members.

The Mahurangi Rugby Club is situated in the rural town of Warkworth, on the Warkworth Show Grounds. The clubrooms have very good facilities. Downstairs are five changing rooms with showers and toilets that lead straight out onto the playing fields while upstairs are the clubrooms with a kitchen, bar and a large function room which is available to hire for private functions.  The clubrooms are also open for the public and we are more than pleased to see members of the community and their families come down to the club to socialize.

The Show Grounds are currently home to rugby and equestrian, however currently plans are in place to develop a multi sports complex that features rugby field to a professional sand based playing surface.  Stage two is the development of the number two and three fields to turn them into sand based fields also.  Work is due to commence at the end of 2008 and will be completed by late 2009 early 2010.  Upon completion of the rugby fields, plans have been made to build a fourth rugby field, hockey turf, netball courts and new clubrooms that doubles as a multi purpose sports centre for rugby, hockey, gymnastics.  The upgrading of the Mahurangi Rugby Club has been divided into stages that will be completed at different time intervals.  Stage one was completed in early 2007 which was the upgrading of the number one rugby field.  This has also had the addition of a set of top grade NPC level light towers.
