Maori All Blacks to tour UK

8:43 pm on 31 August 2012

The Maori All Blacks are to play three matches in the United Kingdom in November this year, including an international against Canada.

The team, which last toured in 2010, will also play a Championship XV and the Leicester Tigers.

Head coach Jamie Joseph says because of the strong tradition of Maori rugby, being part of the Maori All Blacks is a great honour.

Joseph says the three-match tour in a busy rugby year is just about right in length.
