In an exciting addition to the International Rugby League calendar, the English have confirmed that they will play NZ Maori in a test at Mt Smart Stadium, Auckland on 16 October. This game will be the curtain raiser for the Kiwis v Samoa test.
A NZ Maori Rugby League team first toured overseas in 1908, and played against England in 1910 - the first ever International match in NZ by any team, and they have been very competitive ever since. For many years, the Maori have competed in the Pacific Cup and in 2008 played an Australian Indigenous side ahead of the official opening ceremony World Cup match.
