The British & Irish Lions are offering 20 Auckland children the chance to take part in Tuesday's public training session at North Harbour Stadium.
And for the last part, 20 talented young rugby players from the area will take to the field to join in with the tourists.
The lucky youngsters are being selected from schools and clubs by local rugby officials.
Head coach Sir Clive Woodward said as well as being in New Zealand to win matches, the Lions are determined to engage with the New Zealand public.
He said: "Youngsters here are passionate about rugby and this will give them the chance not just to rub shoulders with some of the greatest players in the world, but to learn something too."
