The Maori All Backs will play two matches in Japan, and in an historic match, will play in Singapore for the first time.

The team will then travel to Singapore to play the Asia Pacific Dragons, an invitational side drawn from top Asian and Polynesian players. It will be coached by former All Blacks Captain and Counties Manukau Coach Tana Umaga.

Singapore, and South East Asia, is an emerging market for rugby and we know there is a huge appetite there to see the exciting style of rugby the Maori All Blacks are famous for.

"Playing in the magnificent new National Stadium in Singapore’s sports hub provides a fantastic venue for fans to really enjoy what will be a great exhibition of top rugby.

"The Asia Pacific Dragons will also include several younger Asian players in a wider training squad which will provide them with valuable exposure to a professional rugby environment. It provides a great opportunity to further develop the game in that part of the world, and something the Asia Pacific Dragons have been at the forfront of of the past few years.

"Singapore is also a possible home for the 18th Super Rugby side so we see this match as a good fit on many levels."

Jon Phelps of the Asia Pacific Dragons said:

"This is a major step forward for the Dragons, and a great honour to have opportunity to play the Maori All Blacks in Singapore.

"Having beaten Japan in Osaka in April this year, and competed in the World Club 10s, this is a huge match, and we look forward to the challenge. We will certainly be looking at assembling a strong squad, and the quality of rugby will be an outstanding spectacle for rugby fans in Asia, but exceptionally competitive."
