Same for me, using xtra. I think it's because NZ newsservers cache the posts
for a lot longer than they do for overseas/international groups. Try
re-setting your newsreader and downloading nz groups from scratch, you'll
get many thousands of posts, going back months. International ones you're
lucky to get them a week old.

I guess it takes longer for your news reader to ascertain what are new posts
and what aren't.

Just guessing here.
