New Zealand scored five tries to beat France in what was an average performance from the hosts with Les Bleus showing plenty of courage throughout the match at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday.
The All Blacks were far from perfect, and will be hoping for a better performance against the French this weekend in Wellington.
That said, a win is a win, and the final score of 42-11 is satisfactory. The highlights of the match in my mind being the memorable haka and of course that textbook tackle by Chabal.
