:: Senju are kinda dull if you ask me, expect for wood release(exclusive to the first) they got nothing at all and there dont seem to be any around anymore. Maybe they stupided themselves to extinction? ::

Nobody is said to have RS's power. What gave rise to the Rinnegan was the best of Senju and Uchiha combining (just 2 paths out of the 6).
Anyway, we have no evidence to state combining Uzumaki and Uchiha will not awake the Rinnegan. In fact going by chapter 606 Senju and Uzumaki are probably equivalent.
So you don't have any positive evidence to claim Uzumaki are more distant from RS than Senju.
First off, a cousin is anyone who is related but not as a direct ancestor or descendant. A Senju eventually marrying into another clan (Uzumaki) would be them branching off. Secondly, if they were that closely related, then they would have also been that closely related to the Uchiha clan too, yet the implications is that they aren't as connected, meaning the Uzumaki came later on. Thirdly, Kushina described them as being "distantly related".
The Rinnegan and ability to create something from nothing is the Rikudou Sennin's power, which as mentioned is solely formed by combining Senju Dna and Uchiha Dna. If there was another method to gain the same powers, then everyone wouldn't be after Hashirama's Dna. The entire point is that the two are directly from the Rikudou Sennin's two sons, one step down from the Rikudou Sennin himself.

Haha, people are after hashirama's dna not because he is senju either. There are plenty of other senjus to pick from.
You and others before, are taking the Older son - Younger son divide all the way to the present, whereas it was just the first step in dilution of the RS's "paths". Those genetic traits are diluted into an unknown number of clans and there may be other combinations that give rise to the rinnegan.
We know now for a fact that the Uchiha and Senju clan are like two parts of the same line starting from the sage; as their combined power grants them Rinnegan, the eyes of the sage. That's all the proof one needs.
Unknown number of clans? What clans? There's nothing suggesting that they weren't the Senju and Uchiha clan right off the bat. The history we were told in fact state the opposite, that the two clans and their conflict have remained the same since that time.
