Otahuhu won the Auckland Rugby League's Fox Memorial Trophy and the Rukutai Shield. The Mount Albert Lions won the Roope Rooster and Stormont Shield, defeating Otahuhu 15-7 and 19-3 respectively.
This was the first year of stand alone clubs, following the abandonment of the Auckland Rugby League's "district scheme". To "unwind" from the scheme, Glenora, Marist, Midlands District, Otahuhu, City-Newton, Eastern Suburbs, Ellerslie, Mount Albert, Northcote, North Shore, Point Chevalier, Ponsonby, Richmond and Southern Districts all played in the fourteen team first division. The top eight qualified for the 1965 competition.
