    Aki to lead Ireland against Maori All Blacks

    AUCKLAND (AFP) – New Zealand-born Bundee Aki was named yesterday to captain Ireland in their opening tour match against the Maori All Blacks.

    Today’s match is being played in Hamilton, where Aki won a Super Rugby title with the Waikato Chiefs in 2013 before heading off to Ireland and winning a Pro12 championship with Connacht.

    Against the Maori, Aki will have Craig Casey and Ciaran Frawley in the halves with Frawley one of five uncapped players in the starting fifteen.
