'Live' broadcasts for all Maori All Blacks games

9:01 am on 14 November 2012

The Maori All Blacks Test match against Canada being played on their short tour of England on 24 November will now be televised live in this country.

The game being played at Oxford University is the last game of the team's three match tour.

Earlier Sky Television said it wasn't possible to broadcast the game because there was little domestic interest in the United Kingdom and it wasn't being filmed.

Sky now says it now working with Maori TV and will show the match live on its pay-channel, with a repeat screening on Maori TV later in the day.

The team's other two matches, against Leicester on 14 November and a Champion Select XV on 17 November are also being shown live.
