Rugby: Māori All Blacks, Moana Pasifika meet for Pōwhiri

From Checkpoint, 6:27 pm on 3 December 2020

The Māori All Blacks and Moana Pasifika team have left their training boots on the bus this afternoon for a Pōwhiri at the Tūrangawaewae Marae in Northern Waikato.

The two teams are in town ahead of an historic clash at Hamilton's FMG stadium on Saturday night.

It's the only time the Māori All Blacks will hit the field this year and the first time they've played in Hamilton since 2008.
