All Blacks.com reports that the All Blacks will play an extra match this year ahead of the Investec Tri Nations, the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU) advised today.

NZRU CEO Steve Tew said the tentative date for the match was Friday 22 July, eight days before the All Blacks play their first Investec Tri Nations match against South Africa in Wellington.

“We are yet to confirm the opposition and venue for the match but we are talking to a number of parties and we hope to have all details confirmed by the end of the month.”

The match would also be used to raise funds for rebuild activities in Christchurch with details on the fund-raising activity to be confirmed in due course.

All Blacks Coach Graham Henry said: “With six weeks between the end of the Investec Super Rugby playoffs and the first Test of the Investec Tri Nations, we were keen for another match to help the team prepare for the upcoming international season. It’s great if we can also use the opportunity to raise funds for the people of Christchurch.”

    Its still pains me to hear the advertiser included in everything.

    \and yes..i do understand that we need them and they help taking the game forward, but sometimes its sounds ridiculous.
    What’s next?
    Street Names? Betfair Umgeni Road, MTN Innes Road
    or
    another Derivco Drop goal by Steyn after a Tata try under the PWC posts.
