NEW ZEALAND are looking to end their Fall Open on a high note after things took a turn for the worse in Ireland last week.
The All Blacks were beaten hard 29-20 in Dublin and will need to improve their game against the French.
France have always been a bogey team for the All Blacks, but haven’t beaten them in the past 12 years.
In their first two Fall Internationals, the French beat Georgia and Argentina, but they can expect a much tougher test this weekend.
Blues head coach Fabien Galthie has called on his team to play their own game of rugby and not try to copy Ireland’s plan to beat New Zealand.
He said: âIreland has its own rugby, its own game. We cannot copy Ireland. We don’t have the same players or the same rugby as them.
âThey were able to play a fantastic game. There are no superlatives available to describe their performance.
“Despite this, the result was in the balance before a test [scored by Akira Ioane] was refused by the referee’s decision for a forward pass [thrown by Rieko Ioane].
“That tells us a lot about Saturday’s opponents.”
