    Maori All Blacks coach Ross Filipo is pushing for a game against the Springboks as part of a revival of traditional rugby tours

    Maori All Blacks coach Ross Filipo is pushing for a game against the Springboks as part of a revival of traditional rugby tours


    Reports from South Africa suggest the All Blacks could tour The Republic country for a three-test series in 2026, with the Springboks heading to New Zealand in 2030.

    The Maori All Blacks haven't played South Africa in 43 years.

    Filipo - who played host to the touring British and Irish Lions as a Maori All Black - believes the challenge would serve his team well.
