NZRL - World Cup preparation
As the 2008 Rugby League World Cup draws closer and closer, the Kiwis have two important matches to play here in New Zealand as part of their build up.
The October appearance of the All Golds jersey on New Zealand soil will be for the first time since 1908. The first modern day All Golds match took place in the UK in October 2007, followed by the Kiwis team wearing the commemorative strip against Australia in the centenary test held in Sydney in May of this year.
The game will also commemorate 100 years of Maori Rugby League, an occasion that has also been marked by the release of 100 Years: Maori Rugby League 1908-2008 penned by renowned rugby league historians John Coffey and Bernie Wood.
