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 2015 the Warriors started the season strongly, however an injury to Shaun Johnson saw the club stumble to finish in 13th place, losing their last eight games of the season.
