9.45pm on SS1 A REL­A­TIVELY ex­per­i­men­tal France side will have to get the bet­ter of New Zealand’s most ex­pe­ri­enced pack in or­der to end its los­ing run against the All Blacks in to­day’s Test.

The last seven matches have all gone New Zealand’s way – although the 2011 World Cup fi­nal was al­most too close to call – and France’s last vic­tory home or away was a 27-22 win in June 2009 in Dunedin.

“What’s im­por­tant is for the play­ers to be­lieve in them­selves and play with­out the hand­brake on,” France coach Philippe Saint-An­dre said.

“We have to be well or­gan­ised and fight as much as pos­si­ble, fight in­tel­li­gently.”
