In 1908 & 1909 Norths played all their matches away from home.
No first grade premiership matches were played at the NSO in 1916 and 1917 due to North Sydney Oval's use for war related activities.
In 1923 the Two time premiers were a showcase team and played all 'home' matches at Moore Park.
Norths played five home matches at Chatswood Oval between 1933 and 1936.

North Sydney Origin facts and trivia:

Gary Larson holds the record for the most number of State of Origin games in a row: 24 [Game 1, 1991 to Game 3, 1998]. He has also played the most number of games without scoring a point.

North Sydney is the only Sydney based club to provide more players for QLD than NSW.
Steve Hanson is our only NSW Origin player to have scored a point, a try in his one match in 1988.
All NSW Origin players only played Origin while at Norths.

Undefeated throughout season: 1921 (8 games, 7 wins 1 draw)
Rothmans Medallists: David Fairleigh (1994), Jason Taylor (1996)

And

What about most games first grade and grade games.

Rep games.

Was shocked Darryl halligan only scored 550 odd. Maybe the goals he missed against Penrith on that tragic day in 91 (major semi) kept his tally down.

Graeme Smith played in the 1976 Amco Cup Final; half back? I think he may have represented New Zealand prior to joining the
Bears.

Big hitting NZ foward, Beau Gallagher played first grade in 1999. Smashed Michael Vella at NSO on TV.

How about Willie McLean; picked from the Bears reserve grade to play fullback for the Rest Of The World vs Australia. A few subsequent first grade games???

Ex Junior Kiwi Andrew Vincent (the "little O") played a first grade game in 1988. Another junior Kiwi, Jarrod McCracken played under 23's and subsequently a long first grade career elsewhere.

Was prop Wayne Taekata (1989);originally a kiwi???

Stan Napa prop (1983) came down from QLD. A kiwi originally??? Stan went out with a bang in reserve grade. After the fulltime hooter, Manly prop Scott Hardy (who had niggled the whole game) took the ball up from a tap penalty. Stan flattened Hardy with a shoulder charge to the delight of the crowd; I think he got sent off for it.
