NORTH ISLAND REPS

North Island reps - Men

Selection for North Island used to be second only to being chosen for the All Blacks; in many cases the inter-Island match was regarded as almost a final trial. The match was played in 1897, 1902-14, 1919-29, 1931-39, 1943-86 and then a one-off game in 1995. North Island also opposed the 1894 New South Wales touring team.
