Trent Renata, Jacob Ellison, Romana Graham, Nick Crosswell, Jamieson Gibson-Park, Declan O'Donnell and Jackson Willison all move into the starting side for the game against an RFU Championship XV team.

"We're obviously disappointed with the loss earlier in the week against Leicester, but the players have moved on and they are very focused and committed to a winning performance," Joseph said.

Maori All Blacks: Jacob Ellison, Hika Elliot, Ben Afeaki, Jarrad Hoeata, Romana Graham, Nick Crosswell, Tanerau Latimer (c), Elliot Dixon, Jamieson Gibson-Park, Willie Ripia, Declan O'Donnell, Tim Bateman, Jackson Willison, Kurt Baker, Trent Renata.  Reserves: Quentin Macdonald, Bronson Murray, Ben May, Jason Eaton, Shane Christie, Frae Wilson, Charlie Ngatai, Andre Taylor.

The match kicks off at 1.05am Sunday (NZT) at Castle Park in Doncaster.
