Hansen keen to make history

9:47 am on 14 May 2014

The All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says they're looking forward to creating history when New Zealand play the United States in Chicago later this year.

The one-off test has been confirmed for November the 2nd (NZ time) at the 61-thousand seat Soldier Field, home of the American NFL side the Chicago Bears.

It will be the first rugby match ever played at the venue and just the third test between the two sides, who last met on American soil in 1980.

The All Blacks will travel to Chicago for the American test before continuing to Europe for their end of year tour.
