LUKE WHITE­LOCK New Zealand No.8 v KEVIN GOUR­DON France No.8

The Rugby Paper - - Internationals -

For the third Test in a row, Gour­don held his own, es­pe­cially in the first half when he car­ried the ball ex­cel­lently and put France on the front foot. But he strug­gled once the All Blacks’ tide turned against the vis­i­tors and White­lock showed his strength and power to good ef­fect to en­sure the hosts ran out easy vic­tors.
