More games wanted for Maori All Blacks

6:29 am on 5 November 2012

Former All Black Buck Shelford says he'd like the Maori All Blacks to get more game time.

The team is leaving for Europe for a three match tour of England.

He suggests that the All Blacks timetable is culled to three or four Tests per year.

Shelford says rugby executives have to decide which squad brings in the dollars - and the All Blacks bring in the most money.

But he says if the Maori All Blacks had regular domestic games against overseas squads, they would generate revenue.
