The British and Irish Lions‘ tour of New Zealand continues, with the Test matches fast approaching. Their next obstacle will be the Maori All Blacks in Rotorua.
The match, to be played at the Rotorua International Stadium is scheduled to kick-off at 5:35pm(AEST) on Saturday, June 17.
The Lions have had a rough start to their tour, winning two of their matches against the New Zealand Provincial Barbarians and Super Rugby side the Crusaders, but also losing matches against the Blues and Highlanders.
The loss to the Highlanders, by just a single point, was particularly damaging, with the Lions heading into the match looking like they had finally got their campaign on the right track after defeating the Crusaders.
