New Zealand WarriorsHaving joined the Australian Rugby League in 1995, the New Zealand Warriors struggled initially before enjoying regular finals appearances in the 2000s. The Warriors have made the Grand Final twice, in 2002 and 2011, but have come away empty-handed on both occasions.

The Warriors never really got going in 2016. An almost complete inability to win away from home saw them finish in 10th place with a record of 10-14, missing the finals for the fifth consecutive season. That saw coach Andrew McFadden replaced by former Kiwi international Stephen Kearney.

Senior coach: Stephen Kearney
Captain: Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
