Māori ABs to get mile-high rumble against US Eagles
The Māori All Blacks are looking at playing in the United States later in the year.
Nigel Cass, the New Zealand Rugby Union’s Strategic Relationships Manager, says the Māori team will carry the All Black brand to North America.
Its part of a plan developed with US-based insurer AIG, which is now the major sponsor of not just the national team but the sevens, women’s under 20s and Māori teams.
It's expected the team will play three games in November, including one in Denver against the US Eagles.
