NZ wont get a 2nd team in the nrl, they dont deserve to either. Even after 14 years in the nrl NZ Warriors relies heavily on imports, australian players. Warriors field a team over 50% australian. Since Warriors have been in the nrl, they have performed average, just under the 50% success rate, we have conceded more points than we have for.
In all key positions fullback,five eight, halfback, hooker, its all australian. Except this season with Stacey Jones coming out of retirement to play halfback.
I think you could argue that Henderson is Scottish or English and Hohaia is definitely not an Aussie. Look at the players who are leaving the club because they can't get game time at the Warriors, Steve Rapira, etc. Like NU said, Toyota Cup is jam packed full of Kiwis.
