2019 Māori All Blacks

  • Maori All Blacks to play Fiji in two-match series:

    The Flying Fijians will have first home-advantage when the Maori All Blacks – assembling for the first time since their Americas end of year tour last year – head to Suva, Fiji, for their season opening match on Saturday 13 July.
    Both teams head to Rotorua, New Zealand where one team will look to even the ledger as the two teams face off again at Rotorua International Stadium on Saturday 20 July.
    Under 20 Curtain raiser
    A Fijian Under-20 side and a New Zealand Maori Under-20 side will be the curtain raiser.
    Both teams arrive in the city one week prior to the match and Councillor Charles Sturt, who leads the Rotorua Lakes Council sport and recreation portfolio, says there will be a number of different Maori and Pacifica events leading up to the match.

  • FYI to see where that sits in the rugby calendar:

    Sat 6 July: Super Rugby Final
    Sun 21 July: 1st ABs test match v Argentina (in Buenos Aires)
    Thu 8 Aug: start of Mitre 10 cup
