New Zealand coach Steve Hansen has not made any changes to the team that beat France 52 – 11 at Eden Park last weekend.

Hansen said, “It isn’t beneficial to be making wholesale changes, if any at all to the playing 23.”


The Allblacks met a very determined French side last weekend, as they went into half time trailing 11 – 8. If it wasn’t for the yellow card on French lock Paul Grabillagues for a high tackle, the game could’ve been much closer as the Allblacks took full advantage of 14 men French side.

The second Test takes place in Wellington.
