The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians will be aiming for their 9th win over the Maori All Blacks in Rotorua tonight.

Fiji has played the Maori All Blacks 30 times with the Maori All Blacks getting 20 wins and two matches have ended in a draw.

Last weekend Fiji created history by beating the Maori All Blacks for the first time in 62 years.

Players like Alivereti Veitokani, Kini Murimurivalu, Filipo Nakosi, Dominiko Waqaniburotu , Jale Vatubua , Waisea Nayacalevu and Mosese Voka will start for Fiji.

On the other hand it is about redemption for the Maori All Blacks.

Lock Tom Franklin says last week it was a bit of a smack in the face but the players  are keen for a bit of redemption.

He says they have  been working really hard and everyone has been doing their part behind the scenes to get ready to prepare to go to battle again and try and redeem themselves.

Fiji play the Maori All Blacks at 7.35 tonight.
