Jamie Joseph urges fans to back Maori

6:36 am on 17 June 2010

The New Zealand Maori Coach Jamie Joseph has urged Bay of Plenty rugby fans to come along in force to support and celebrate his team's first match with Ireland.

The match in Rotorua on Friday night is the second of three to mark the team's Centenary and contrary to some media reports there are still plenty of seats.

The Maori play England in Napier on Wednesday night.
