New Zealand Warriors

New Zealand WarriorsHaving joined the Australian Rugby League in 1995, the New Zealand Warriors experienced financial re-invention in 2000 to finally help the club become a force in the NRL. Since 2000, the Warriors won a Minor Premiership in 2002 but lost the Grand Final to the Sydney Roosters in the same season. New Zealand became the first NRL side in Premiership history under the McIntyre system to beat the Minor Premiers from eighth position, doing so in the first week of the 2008 finals series.

In 2014 the Warriors just missed out on a finals berth finishing the regular season in ninth place. Despite ending the season on the same amount of total points (28) as the Brisbane Broncos the New Zealand-based side missed out due to a less favourable points differential.
