After falling agonizingly close in the final of the 2018 Ford NHL the Tiger Turf North Harbour Men will be looking to go one step further in 2019. The side is able to call on plenty of international experience in Xavier Guy, George Muir, Steve Edwards, James Coughlan, Cam Hayde and George Muir. There is plenty of youth in this side and several of the team featured in the Vantage National Under 21 tournament in early 2019. Look for the North Harbour side to play with good structure and be clinical on the set piece.
