FRANCE and the All Blacks will make sweeping changes as the two go head-to-head for the second time in four days. New Zealand were at their extravagant best in Paris on Saturday and had the game wrapped up by half-time, going in 31-5 ahead.
The French managed to keep it tight in the second period but still went down 18-38 and fell to a fourth straight defeat. This match is a chance for France to show off their hosting potential before the 2023 World Cup, whilst Guy Noves can test his squad depth.
