2005 National Provincial Championship Results
New Zealand's provincial rugby competition

The 2005 NPC, the Air New Zealand National Provincial Championship was the last year of the format that had been in use for 8 years.

There were 3 Divisions with 10 teams in Division 1, 9 teams in Division 2 and 8 teams in Division 3.

At the end of the 2005 season, the competition was to change. The 2nd Division ceased to exist, with teams moving to either the Air NZ Cup or the Heartland Championship.

Hawkes Bay, Counties Manukau, and Manawatu  moved to the Air NZ Cup.

Nelson Bays and Marlborough merged to form Tasman, a new team in the Air NZ Cup.

East Coast, North Otago, Poverty Bay and Wanganui moved to the Heartland Championship.
