Kiwis coach David Kidwell forecast serious changes to his side's culture on Monday when he told Kiwi media: "Clearly we have to look at our code of conduct and we'll be making adjustments to that where it's need it".

"I can't express my disappointment enough in their actions in the early hours of Saturday morning", he said.

In a statement released by Melbourne Storm, Bromwich said: " I'd like to start by firstly apologising to my family, Melbourne Storm, New Zealand Rugby League, the NRL, my team-mates, the sponsors, and the members and fans. "Now we move forward and focus on the World Cup".

Both players could now be axed from the Kiwis' plans for this year's World Cup, with governing body New Zealand Rugby League (NZRL) due to make a decision on any punishment within the next week.

Kevin Proctor of the Titans has stood down as the team's co-captain.

Kevin Proctor has also stood down from his role as co-captain of the Titans.

"As the Kiwis head coach, I have made the decision with the backing of the NZRL that Jesse Bromwich and Kevin Proctor will not be considered for the upcoming World Cup campaign", Kidwell said.

He was reportedly with Kiwi captain Jesse Bromwich when captured on CCTV footage with a Canberra man who appeared in court on Saturday.

Hayton said he was fully supportive of the stance taken by Kidwell.

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

The cocaine accused duo won't be in the squad for the World Cup.

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.

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

ACT Police said a man had been charged for possession and supply of a drug of dependence to two NRL players.
