New Zealand Warriors

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 endured a rough campaign in 2017. They were still in touch with the top eight in late June, despite only winning seven of their first 15 matches, but a nine-game losing streak to close out the season saw them finish the season well off the pack.
