"Though the 70s didn’t produce too much playing success they were the platform for what would be the peaks of the 80s and 90s. That Marist would have exceptional teams again was first flagged in the early 1980s and the outstanding under 19 and under 21 teams coached by Eric Kohlhase. One who emerged from these sides was the mighty wing John Kirwan, whose selection as an 18-year old third grader for Auckland in 1983 is now the stuff of legends. He was joined by other champion players in the Brooke brothers, Bernie McCahill, Terry Wright and Greg Cooper. Many of these players would be involved in the Gallaher Shield success, at long last, in 1989 and also in 1991, 1994 and 1996. Other club members, too, would join them through the 1990s and into the 2000s as All Blacks: Pat Lam, Shane Howarth, Steve Devine, Saimone Taumoepeau and Isaia Toeava. In recent times, too, Marist has been in the forefront of promoting women’s rugby and many Black Ferns have come from the club"
