NZRU looking for international match for Maori

12:35 pm on 29 January 2010

The New Zealand Rugby Union is hoping to shortly be able to announce an exciting schedule for the New Zealand Maori this year.

The New Zealand Maori will celebrate their centenary this year and they are the priority for 2010 ahead of the Junior All Blacks who will not play the Pacific Nations Cup because of financial cutbacks.

It has been reported that the Maori may get a match against England this winter, but the NZRU's manager of professional rugby, Neil Sorenson says nothing has been secured yet.
