INTERNATIONAL rugby is on the bill at Iffley Road tomorrow night when the Maori All Blacks take on Canada (7.30).

Known as New Zealand Maori until this summer, the All Blacks will perform a traditional haka before kick-off.

Appearing for the team offers players a step towards becoming fully fledged All Blacks.

But they are often a strong side in their own right, seen most notably in recent years by their victory over the British & Irish Lions in 2005.

Canada come into the match on the back of a 35-3 victory over Russia and could include London Welsh wing Phil MacKenzie.
