The 2012 New Zealand Māori rugby union tour of England was a series of three matches played by the Māori All Blacks (then known as the New Zealand Māori team) in England.[1]

Despite playing three fixtures, only one would be against a test international nation (Canada); this was the second time the two teams met. The Māori team also faced English domestic team Leicester Tigers and a RFU Championship XV, a team consisting of players that compete in England's second-tier club tournament, RFU Championship.

Squad[edit]

It was announced that Highlanders head coach Jamie Joseph, would coach the side for the 2012 tour, after leading the Māori's to success over England in 2010.[7]

Joseph named his 26-man squad on 29 October 2012.[8]

Note: Flags indicate national union as has been defined under IRB eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-IRB nationality.
