However there is also a significant presence outside Auckland with the Waikato Clinical School branch of the faculty, in Waikato Hospital, Hamilton (Hamilton, New Zealand). This campus is home to 50-60 undergraduate medical students for most of the academic year.

None of this succeeded in stopping the establishment of the game and by 1910 it was being played in Auckland, Taranaki (Taranaki Region), Rotorua, Nelson (Nelson, New Zealand), Southland (Southland Region), Wanganui, Marlborough (Marlborough, New Zealand), Invercargill, Hawke's Bay, and South Auckland. The New Zealand Rugby League was formed in 1909 and other provinces joined the league.

It was introduced to New Zealand in the 1860s and it is now common on the part of North Island north of Rotorua. In most places it is the only frog species in the vicinity. However there have been reports of a recent decline, suspected to be due to predatory fish. It was also introduced to the Pacific island countries of New Caledonia and Vanuatu in the 19th century, and has since become common there. birth_name Caleb Stan Ralph birth_place Rotorua, New Zealand death_date He made the New Zealand sevens side while still at Western Heights High School, Rotorua.
