INTERCHANGE | JASON MACKIE (#16)

Out of the Takahiwai Warriors in Northland, Mackie (born on December 25, 1968) had a truly meteoric rise. He had played for the Northland representative side and New Zealand Maori when he was selected for the Kiwis’ tour to Wales, England and France. He appeared in four Tests and then joined the Auckland City Vulcans in the Lion Red Cup in 1994. As a loose forward he made a big impression to earn a contract with the Auckland Warriors, securing a spot on the bench for the club’s opening match against Brisbane in 1995. The 1995 season was his only one in the NRL. Mackie now lives in Queensland.


NRL career: 5 games (1995), 0 points.

Warriors: 5 games (1995), 0 points.

Jason James Mackie (born 25 December 1968) is a New Zealand former rugby league footballer.

He represented Northland 18 times between 1990 and 1993 scoring 14 tries. During the 1991 season he was based in Devonport with the Navy and traveled to Whangarei for matches and training.

In 1993 he captained the province to the North Island Second Division title and was also the player-coach of the Takahiwai Warriors who won the Northland Rugby League club competition.
In 1990 Mackie represented the New Zealand Māori side against the touring Great Britain side. He later played in the 1992 Pacific Cup.

In 1993 he was the only second division player to be selected on the New Zealand national rugby league team tour of Great Britain and France and became Northland's first ever test player. He played in all four tests on tour.

In 1994 he was signed by the Auckland Warriors who were to enter the Australian Rugby League premiership in 1995. He moved south to Auckland and played for the Auckland City Vulcans in the 1994 Lion Red Cup.
He was in the inaugural team for the Warriors when they made their debut in March, 1995. However, he played the majority of his Warriors career in the reserve grade team and was released in June 1996.

In 1997 he again represented Northland

Last update

Very difficult finding anything on Mackie other than the last update where we used an article from 2015 written by the NRL site for the Warriors 20th season.

According to the article he is working in the mining industry in Queensland. A search across all normal avenues comes up with nothing. Jason Mackie seems to be quite a popular name in Queensland.

I'll pencil in the rather unflattering NRL article but add him to the MIA list for further research...

Jason Mackie

Then: A home-grown talent who never really kicked on at the club, playing in the inaugural team before spending most of his time in Auckland playing reserve grade.

Now: Working in the mining industry in Queensland
