All Blacks set to play in USA

6:30 am on 26 March 2014

The All Blacks are set to play a game in the United States later this year, with New Zealand Rugby chief executive Steve Tew hinting it'll be in Chicago.

No opponent or venue's yet been confirmed for the match, which will be en route to the end of year tour to Europe - much like last year's one-off against Japan in Tokyo.

Tew says he's confident of making an announcement in the next few weeks.

Steve Tew says there are no plans to play a Test in the Pacific Islands before the next Rugby World Cup.
