New Zealand captain Bromwich and Kiwi teammate Kevin Proctor were accused of consuming an illegal substance in the early hours of Saturday following the Test loss to Australia.

"We have values to uphold, and I can't express enough that they have broken my trust, their teammates' trust and the New Zealand public's trust", he said.

"In our Te Iwi Kiwi house no one is bigger than the team".

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

New Zealand Rugby League has now taken the decision the pair will not be selected for the upcoming World Cup and coach Kidwell has admitted he has been shocked by the recent incident.

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.

Greenberg backed the game's current drug-testing procedures but declined to confirm whether the Integrity Unit had tested either Proctor or Bromwich over the weekend.

Kidwell decided that the integrity of the Kiwis jersey was more important than how detrimental it would be to go into a World Cup campaign without Bromwich and Proctor.

"I'm pretty gutted", Kidwell said.

He also said there would be a review of the team's rules whilst in camp for the World Cup - to be held across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea - including a possible curfew.

Bromwich and Proctor said over the weekend they were too drunk to remember the incident, which followed their 30-12 defeat to Australia.

The allegations came after Canberra man Adrian Mark Crowther, 38, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Saturday after allegedly selling cocaine to the duo.

In a statement via the Storm, Bromwich will step down from the Kiwis and Storm leadership groups, be sidelined for two NRL matches, donate his test fee to charity and undergo counselling.

Titans chief executive Graham Annesley on Sunday said he would reach out to the governing body over why there wasn't stricter supervision of players whilst on representative duties.
