All Blacks beat France

November 12, 2017

The All Blacks have defeated France 38-18 in a see-saw game in Paris.

Up 31-5 after a one-sided first spell, France produced a superb second half to come back.

Four New Zealand tries in the first half was followed by a messy second 40 minutes, highlighted by a bizarre play from second five-eighth

It took some staunch All Blacks’ defence and slippery conditions to keep their try-line clean for the remainder as France controlled the game.

New Zealand enjoyed 73 per cent of territory before halftime, managed just 12 per cent afterwards.

First five-eighth Beauden Barrett, who missed the Brisbane test loss with injury, was particularly influential in general play and landed all his six shots at goal.

France 18 (T. Thomas, Penalty tries; A. Belleau 2 pens)
New Zealand 38 (D. Coles, W. Naholo (2), R. Crotty, S. Cane tries; B. Barrett 4 cons, pen)
