Both Bromwich and Proctor are accused of trying to purchase cocaine outside a Canberra nightclub following the Kiwis' 30-12 loss to Australia on Friday night, with Kidwell standing both players down from international duty in the near future.

"We have values to uphold, and I can't express enough that they have broken my trust, their teammates' trust," Kidwell said today.

"No one is bigger than the team, now we move forward and focus on the World Cup."

"These guys weren't rookies, they were senior players."

"At the end of the day, the integrity in that jersey and the values that we uphold in the Kiwis, that's the most important thing."

The Kiwis have values to uphold, said Kiwis coach David Kidwell and that's why Jesse Bromwich and Kevin Proctor have been axed from the World Cup squad.
