Should we see a return of the All Blacks vs Māori All Blacks tour?

The question comes after the All Blacks thrashed Tonga 102-0 over the weekend, but as a curtain raiser the Māori All Blacks played Samoa, beating them in a tougher contest. 

Former All Blacks captain Buck Shelford told Mike Hosking that he would happily see the series - which hasn't been seen for decades - return. 

One concern that could prevent it's return is the possibility that the Māori side might win. 

"It's a bit of a slap in the face if they did lose. Some of the Māori All Blacks are actually All Blacks as well."
