Kiwis captain Jesse Bromwich and teammate Kevin Proctor will play no part in this year's World Cup.

Coach David Kidwell said he was disappointed to hear of the accusations when he appeared on Channel Nine's Sunday Footy Show.

"New Zealand Rugby League are 100 per cent behind this decision", said chief executive Alex Hayton. He was also required to donate his test fee to a charity.

"Clearly we have to look at our code of conduct and we'll be making adjustments to that where it's need it, " Kidwell said.

"NZRL and the Kiwis will continue to work hard to ensure the people of New Zealand are proud to support our teams both on and off the field".

The Kiwi back-rower was appointed Titans co-captain in February but could be stripped of the leadership role if allegations of purchasing cocaine are proven.

The World Cup will be held in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, running through to December 2.

"These two are good men who clearly made bad decision and this was out of character, but there is a bigger picture here".

Neither are expected to face police charges. "At this stage ACT Policing is unable to provide a specific timeframe in relation to this investigation", it said in a statement.

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.

"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.

Bromwich had already relinquished the Kiwis captaincy and copped a two match suspension from his NRL club, the Melbourne Storm, while Proctor stood down as co-captain of the Gold Coast Titans.

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

Jesse Bromwich captained the Kiwis in their test against Australia and has had a long standing career in league with the Melbourne Storm.
