The Warriors have turned down the offer of several top line juniors from the Australian league system.
Coach Daniel Anderson says the development programmes here are working well.
He says there is no need to look across the Tasman for talent, although the offers keep rolling in, including a call from Australia's leading agent offering up some junior players.
Daniel Anderson says the under-16 and under-18 national competitions are producing some great players and the game in New Zealand is the stronger for it.
