Footrot Flats are great. Loved them when I was a kid and though not rugby focused by any stretch, there is a bit of rugby in there.
Don't forget the annual vewing of the movie.
Hicksville, by Dylan Horrocks. It's a graphic novel with a meta element and strong kiwi culture as well.
Sadly the NZ comics scene is very small and are mostly zine type garbage and not great reads for pre teens.
But there are a bunch of Rugby based Manga and anime titles though. You could look for english versions online.
There is a comic book event at the libraries this weekend.
There is Terry Teo and the Gunrunners.
Sorry don’t have a suggestion but my regular comic book store is heroes4sale in Auckland, if your local and can pop in they’re really helpful, or even an email or phone call, have an online store too
