Midweek match


The All Blacks’ season-ending northern tour has been extended to five matches with a midweek game against a French selection now scheduled for Lyon. French media have reported the All Blacks will play a French XV on Wednesday, November 15 (NZT), just three days after the All Blacks’ test against France in Paris. The tour will kick off on November 5 against the Barbarians at Twickenham, London. The All Blacks then head to Paris to take on Les Bleus, their first encounter since the All Blacks’ 24-19 win in Paris last November. They meet the French selection three days later before playing Scotland at Murrayfiel­d on November 18. The final match is against Wales in Cardiff on November 26.
