TORONTO - The Canadian men's rugby team will play the New Zealand Maori All Blacks on Nov. 3 at Toronto's BMO Field.

The side features top New Zealand Maori rugby players and boasts an impressive record. Past Maori victims include England, Ireland and the British & Irish Lions.

Canada, ranked 13th in the world, fell 32-19 to the Maori last November in a game played in Oxford, England.

The Canadian men are currently involved in the IRB Pacific Nations Cup. The Maori match will follow a home-and-away World Cup qualifying series in August against the 16th-ranked U.S.

The touring Maori will face the U.S. on Nov. 9 in Philadelphia.
