The Maori – who face the British & Irish Lions on their tour of New Zealand on June 17 next year – are already due to face the USA Eagles as part of a double header before the All Blacks play Ireland in Chicago.

They then travel to Ireland to face Munster, before they play Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop on Wednesday, November 16.

The clash between the two sides is a key part of Harlequins' 150th year celebrations, they have not met for 90 years – Quins won the last meeting between the two sides 11-5 at Twickenham back in 1926.

"The Maori All Blacks are an important part of New Zealand Rugby's high performance strategy – and when they play on the international stage it is an opportunity to press for other honours," Maori rugby board chairman Wayne Peters said in a statement.

"This is a fantastic tour for players and for fans in the USA, Ireland and UK.  We're delighted to be taking the Maori All Blacks on what will be a challenging and exciting campaign.

"We're incredibly proud of this team and their ability to take their culture and style of rugby to the world. They're a special team that is popular anywhere they travel and they're always exciting to watch."
