We were formerly known as Northern Zone Deaf Rugby Football Union, but because of confusion between the New Zealand Deaf Rugby Football Union, both abbreviated to NZDRU, Northern Zone changed their name to Northern Marlins.
We compete in the Annual New Zealand Rugby Football Championship, which traditionally has been held during Easter Weekend. Other teams competing at the National Championships are Central Zone Deaf Rugby Football Union and the Southern Zone Deaf Rugby Football Union. There is a friendly rivalry between the three teams that spans many years.
The first of a 3 part series about the Marlins; a group of rugby mad Kiwi blokes who all happen to be Deaf.
