Māori All Blacks to play two-match series against Ireland
The first match will be at FMG Stadium Waikato in Hamilton on Wednesday 29 June at 7.05pm with the second at Sky Stadium in Wellington on Tuesday 12 July at 7.05pm. Both matches will be live and exclusive on SKY.
Ireland will bring an expanded squad to cater for the two mid-week matches which will be in addition to the three Test Steinlager Series against the All Blacks.
The Māori All Blacks have played Ireland on two previous occasions, the most famous being the New Zealand Natives 13-4 win at Landsdowne Road in Dublin in 1888. The only other match between the two sides was in 2010 at Rotorua International Stadium where the Māori All Blacks won a thrilling match 31-28.
Maori All Blacks to meet Ireland in midweek fixtures this July
The Māori All Blacks have played Ireland on two previous occasions, the most famous being the New Zealand Natives’ 13-4 win at Landsdowne Road in Dublin in 1888. So the news that two additional Māori All Blacks Ireland fixtures give many traditional supporters a feel-good factor.
After the disruption of the last 24 months, seeing midweek games announced to wide applause is appreciated. Since the pandemic shortened calendars, adding games is on one hand good, yet on the other a massive ask of the touring nation. So how Irish Rugby accepted and developed these clashes in the middle of three peak Test matches, helps to embolden the game in the long term.
Of importance, are the dates. Plus, the fact they are over 13 days apart means a good deal to the men in green. Planning for the first match at FMG Stadium Waikato in Hamilton, on Wednesday, June 29 at 7.05pm. Then the second #MABvIRE game is at Sky Stadium in Wellington, on Tuesday, July 12. A very decent break for a tourist, although if fitness becomes an issue after the all-important Irish second test, imagine some ‘Irish blooded’ players being possibly employed .
Maori All Blacks meet Ireland in midweek fixtures this July
The Māori All Blacks will play Ireland in two mid-week matches in Hamilton and Wellington this July. Not the main focus of the tourists yet the stature of the opposition must give the Irish Rugby advance planning staff an immensely proud enthusiasm. On top of the earliest game in 1888, this comes after the most recent game when the Māori All Blacks were victorious 31-28 in 2010 at the Rotorua International Stadium.
