Premier Rugby

The Premier team is the flagship side at every club. If you are looking to test your rugby abilities, develop new skills and push yourself then the Auckland Premier competition is for you. We also have a very strong Development team which plays an exciting brand of rugby and supports the Premiers.

The 2021 season was a great year for both teams with the Development side reaching the Semi-final of the George Nicholson Cup and the Premier side narrowly losing in the Gallaher Sheild Final at Eden Park.

Both squads will be working very hard in the pre-season window starting in January 2022 then building to warm up games before the main competition commences in April. There will be a number of returning and new players challenging for spots in these teams along with some of young guns stepping up from our U21 side looking to impress and play in the Premier arena.

We have a very strong 2023 coaching group leading the Premier and Development programmes;


Nooroa Tokahere (Head Coach)
Ant Strachan (Assistant Coach)
Joseph Tuitavake (Assistant Coach)


Carl Cimpoias (Head Coach)
Brandon Jackson (Assistant Coach)
Tavita Lene-Milo (Player/Assistant Coach)

So if you are looking for somewhere new and different to play or if you are returning after time away from the game, then GTEC is the club for you. We are always looking for new players for our sides so contact us #GTEC
