Bromwich, Proctor axed for World Cup

NZ captain Jesse Bromwich runs on to the field before the Anzac Test

Speaking to media today, Kiwis coach David Kidwell announced that the pair have been deemed ineligible for selection for global rugby league's showpiece event, scheduled to take place from October 27 to December 2 later this year.

The Daily Telegraph's Jamie Pandaram is reporting an announcement is set to be made on Monday afternoon that NZRL will abandon Bromwich and Proctor from their World Cup plans.

An emotional Kidwell said both players - who stand to lose $120,000 each from a maximum six games at the World Cup - had broken his trust.

"We're going into a World Cup campaign and I want everyone to understand that we have values to uphold", said Kidwell.

Hayton said they're still investigating adding another person to their coaching staff for the Rugby League World Cup.

Bromwich will be sidelined for two NRL matches, donate his test fee to charity and undergo counseling. "But separately, it occurred on global duty and we will look at what we think are appropriate sanctions because of how we think it affects the Kiwis and New Zealand Rugby League".

THE Kiwis have axed captain Jesse Bromwich and teammate Kevin Proctor from their World Cup squad after the pair were caught up in an illicit drugs scandal last weekend.

Proctor has relinquished his role as Gold Coast Titans co-captain and issued a statement saying he was "extremely embarrassed and sorry" for his actions.

"I obviously had too much to drink before the incident that has caused all the trouble happened much later in the night", Proctor said in a statement.

"I've only just been notified of this", Annesley said.

He then handed it to Bromwich and Proctor, who were said to have rolled up bank notes and taken the substance.

Proctor will learn his club's punishment later this week when he faces the Titans board, but has already stepped down as co-captain and from playing duties.

While both players were named in court, neither has been charged with an offence.

Titans chief executive Graham Annesley was stunned by the revelations when contacted today by The Courier-Mail.
