New South Wales Māori North have won the Rohe title at this year's Māori Rugby League tournament held in Auckland over the weekend after thrashing Tihoi 48-6 in the final.

The Steve Watene Shield has found a new home this year in Sydney, Australia.

New South Wales Māori North steam-rolled their way to victory with eight tries to one.

Their efforts were rewarded with 10 players selected for the NZMRL Rohe side.

The motivation now is to make a return next year.

Their captain hopes next year he'll get to play against his region of origin, Waikato.

As for many of these players, they'll be returning to pre-season training in two weeks' time with their respective NRL clubs.

Clark has just extended his contact with the Bulldogs.
