Japan will host New Zealand’s Maori All Blacks in a two-match November series, the Japan Rugby Football Union announced Monday.

“It gives us great pleasure to welcome the Maori All Blacks to Japan for the first time, following last autumn’s tour by the All Blacks, the world champions,” Japan Rugby Football Union Chairman Tatsuzo Yabe told the JRFU website. “It is a privilege to be able to invite and have two matches with another leading rugby team from New Zealand again this year.”
