The New Zealand Rugby League today reprimanded Kiwi captain Roy Asotasi over comments he has made about national coach Gary Kemble.

Asotasi has told newspaper reporters in Australia that he and other players had no confidence in Kemble as coach after last year’s internationals against Australia, Great Britain and France.
"Roy has made comments which are both inappropriate and unacceptable for any Kiwi captain or player to make about a New Zealand coach," said NZRL chairman Ray Haffenden.
"By doing this, Roy has shown no respect for the New Zealand coach’s position. He has also shown little regard for the game’s heritage and those Kiwi captains and players who have gone before him.
"I spoke to Roy this morning to tell him we couldn’t have the Kiwi captain making public comments of this type about the Kiwi coach."
