New Zealand Kiwis

The New Zealand national Rugby League team are one of the 3 powerhouses of world rugby and are currently the reigning world champions after beating Australia in the last world cup.

The New Zealand Kiwis have appeared at very world cup since its inception in 1954 but it wasn’t until that win 2013 that they really joined the heavyweights of Word rugby league.

The New Zealand test team features many of the world’s greatest rugby players and it is no surprise that it has been the Kiwis who have managed to push the Kangaroos at the very top level of Test Rugby League. Their World Cup win in 2013 announced the world that they can mix it with the Aussies and even defeat them in their own back yard but the biggest issue for the Kiwis has been building upon successes and showing the consistency needed to remain as the number 1 ranked test team in Rugby League.

The New Zealand Kiwis have the advantage of facing off against the Kangaroos at least once a year in the Anzac Day Test Match, held mid-season every year and with their entire squad (bar the odd call up from the Super League) featuring player plying their trade in the NRL, the Kiwis go into matches against all Test teams with the belief that they can win.

Many of the New Zealand test players are not just regulars for their club sides but they are the stars of their NRL club sides and that really makes the difference at this level. The national team is also boosted by the New Zealand Warriors, a club side based in Auckland who play in the NRL. That gives a simple pathway for young New Zealanders to play in the top Rugby League club competition and it also means that many of the national side play for the same domestic team which is a great for moral and for those partnerships that national teams find hard to build.
