For nearly 70 years Auckland would often field a Second XV in first-class matches, either as 'Auckland B' or 'An Auckland XV'. The latter designation was also used for Auckland Colts sides that played first-class rugby in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as not-quite full-strength teams that met unions like Bay of Plenty and Waikato in the 1950s. The full list of 117 Ponsonby players who appeared in first-class matches for these teams can be viewed by clicking the link above.
