The Kiwis-Lebanon clash will continue a tradition between Leeds and the New Zealanders, dating back to 1907. The first-ever touring side, the All Golds, played at Headingley in the first of 12 meetings between the sides.
The most recent match came in 2015. The Kiwis won 34-16 in front of a sell-out crowd in West Yorkshire.
