Maori All Blacks v Ireland LIVE score updates, TV and stream information, kick-off time and more
Ireland face the Maori All Blacks in the penultimate game of their New Zealand tour on Tuesday morning Irish time.
Andy Farrell's men made history by becoming the first Irish team to beat the All Blacks on New Zealand soil last weekend and will come up against Ian Foster's side in the final game of the three-match test this Saturday.
But before then they take on the Maori All Blacks in the penultimate game of the tour at 8.05am today.
Keith Earls will captain Ireland for the clash at the Sky Stadium in Wellington, which is the same venue as Saturday's massive clash with the All Blacks.
Ireland will be out for revenge against the Maori side after losing to them in the first game of the tour almost two weeks ago.
An inexperienced Irish team suffered a punishing start in Hamilton as the Maoris scored four first-half tries and went on to win 32-17.

Andy Farrell on the game
“We’ve some young lads in that changing room that have been inspired by these lot (the Test team), who want to get back out there again on Tuesday night and perform well against the Maoris.
“These lads have taken a lot of pain, that’s what we’ve put them under, the pressure of taking them out of their comfort zone.
“The weeks have been totally different to what they’ve been used to before because of us trying to play five games in such a short space of time and there’s been no whinging.
“They’ve been mentally really tough and they’ll back the lads up as well to make sure they’re in good form for Tuesday night.”
Welcome to our live blog for the penultimate game of Ireland's tour to New Zealand.
Things started badly for Andy Farrell's men as they lost their first test against Ian Foster's side in Auckland just days after an experimental team suffered defeat to the Maori All Blacks in Hamilton.
Johnny Sexton was forced off in that first All Blacks test and things looked rather grim heading into last weekend's clash in Dunedin.
But Sexton returned to play a starring role in a famous win over the test hosts, which was of course Ireland's first ever victory on New Zealand soil.
Confidence will be high in the Ireland camp going into the third and final test and Maori All Blacks head coach Clayton McMillan has stated that he is expecting the visitors "to come back strong" after that loss 13 days ago.
