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.
