Mark Mayerhofler began and ended his career in New Zealand first class rugby with North Harbour. But he is better remembered for the long and successful association he had with Canterbury and the Crusaders, where he won three Super Rugby titles.

At the end of 2000 he moved to France, but never settled and was back in New Zealand for the 2002 season, joining the Blues and returning to Harbour after a seven-year break.

After one season with the Blues, Mayerhofler relocated to Newcastle in 2003 where he remained until 2007.  Capped six times by the All Blacks, Mayerhofler has also appeared for the famous New Zealand Maori side and the New Zealand Barbarians.
