Games between the All Blacks and France are never dull. We look back at some of the best in history.

1 New Zealand 62 France 31 OCTOBER 17, 2015
The talk all week had been about whether the All Blacks could deal with the ghosts of their past.
They were playing a World Cup quarterfinal in Cardiff against France eight years after they had lost a World Cup quarterfinal in Cardiff against France.
It turned out there were no ghosts on the night and the All Blacks destroyed the French with a nine-try blitz that saw them play the most stunning rugby and announce their readiness and eagerness to retain their title.
POWER PLAY The All Blacks had too much pace and explosive power for the French in 2015.
