New Zealand Post expects keen interest in a stamp issue next week to mark 100 years of Maori rugby.

The stamps and a special New Zealand Maori Rugby centenary jersey were blessed at a ceremony at the New Zealand Rugby Union headquarters in Wellington on Wednesday.

Waatea News reports the 50 cent stamp has an image of the jersey design, while the 80 cent stamp is of the official centenary logo developed by the rugby union.
