"I regret making the choice of staying out with my team-mates until the early hours of Saturday morning, as well as consuming an excessive amount of alcohol".

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

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

Hayton said they're still investigating adding another person to their coaching staff for the Rugby League World Cup. However, he has stepped down from playing duties for the team as well as the co-captaincy.

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.

The NZRL announced the decision to exclude Bromwich and Proctor from their World Cup plans on Monday afternoon.

"We will work to try and remedy and build our trust back with the public".

New Zealand's promotional video for the world cup features Jessie Bromwich, third from left, and Shaun Kenny-Dowall, far right.

"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.

"With this incident, we definitely need to make some changes going into the World Cup, 100 per cent".

Canberra man Adrian Mark Crowther, 38, appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Saturday after allegedly selling cocaine to the two Kiwis players.

The allegations against the pair emerged in a court case which heard that a local man was captured on CCTV preparing a white powder on his phone.

Bromwich stood down as Kiwis captain and from the Storm's leadership group which includes Kangaroos skipper Cameron Smith.

NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg is satisfied with Melbourne's two-game ban for Jesse Bromwich after his involvement in a drugs scandal over the weekend.

While both players were named in a court hearing at the weekend, neither has been charged with anything.
