The All Blacks will be globetrotting this year taking Tests to nine different countries in a packed schedule, but one place that still isn't on the itinerary is Fiji.

New Zealand and Fiji will play a one-off test in San Diego in July - marking the first time the All Blacks have been back in the Southern Californian city in 44 years.

Despite the All Blacks never playing an official test in Fiji, New Zealand Rugby CEO Mark Robinson says they couldn't make it work this year.
