Match Commentary

81'19-24 End of second half
80'
80'It's all over as Aaron Smith lumps the ball into touch. What a match that was.
79'
79'All Blacks on the attack deep inside the French half. They'll be looking to close this game out now. France need to make a play.
77'19-24 Penalty goal - Baptiste Serin , France
76'Exciting finish now as France are within 5 points of New Zealand. The All Blacks win the ball back from kick off and Barrett pins the French back onto their own 5 metre line. They'll have to go the length now, though they have the players to do it.
75'France trying to unlock the New Zealand defense from deep inside their own half and end up being bundled into touch. It erupts into some pushing and shoving. France with penalty now and they opt for a shot at goal to bring them within one score of the All Blacks.
70'New Zealand looking to finish the game off now as they go through the phases on the edge of the French 22. France's defense was superb though as they smash back the likes of Kieran Reid and Codie Taylor.
70'Substitute on - Camille Chat , France
70'Player substituted - Guilhem Guirado , France
68'Loose lineout by France sets New Zealand on the attack again. Beauden Barrett immediately puts in another cross field kick which isn't dealt with but play is brought back for a knock on.
67'Player substituted - Louis Picamoles , France
67'Substitute on - Damien Chouly , France
66'End to end stuff now as New Zealand look to kill the game off. Julian Savea charging up the middle of the pitch.
64'
63'The no look offload from Baptiste Serin was out of this world! He's 22 and living up to the blockbuster billing.
63'Player substituted - Dane Coles , New Zealand
63'Substitute on - Codie Taylor , New Zealand
63'16-24 Conversion - Baptiste Serin , France
62'What a try from France! Baptiste Serin with a sumptuous offload to Louis Picamoles who crashes over from close range. That all off the back of a devastating French scrum penalty.

57'Player substituted - Matt Todd , New Zealand
57'Substitute on - Ardie Savea , New Zealand

53'Another let off for the All Blacks as Gourdon is judged to have gone off his feet.
51'The French backs have been making yards almost at will tonight. Last ditch All Blacks defense has been superb otherwise this could be a very different game.
50'
50'9-17 Penalty goal - Baptiste Serin , France

43'6-15 Try - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand
42'INTERCEPTION!! Beauden Barrett breaks French hearts as he intercepts and races some 90 metres to dot down under the sticks. No one is catching him from there.
42'Brilliant offloading from France as they hammer away at the All Black line once again.
41'About to get back underway in the second-half. Brilliant atmosphere in Paris as the home crowd sense a potential upset. France will need to be more clinical if they are to get anything from this.
41'6-10 End of first half
40'
40'Thrilling first half in Paris. The French started at a frenetic pace but couldn't quite break through. The All Blacks have had to endure wave after wave of attack, enjoying just 38% of possession.
40'6-10 Start of second half
40'6-10 Penalty goal - Maxime Machenaud , France
39'Brilliant kick chance earns France a penalty in front of the sticks. That should be 10-6 at the half-time.
37'The match has hit a bit of a lull after a series of handling errors. For all their possession and territory, France will want to get more than 3 points on the score board before the half.
31'New Zealand defense has held strong despite an onslaught from France in the opening 30 minutes. You do feel that if they continue to weather this storm then the All Blacks will pull away in the final quarter of the game.
28'
28'France go within inches yet again after a flowing move from the half-way puts Vakatawa into space down the left. He steps inside but can't quite find Fofana with the offload. Brilliant play from the French.
27'Lamerat strips Julian Savea of the ball to the delight of the French crowd. Strong defensive set from Les Bleus.
26'
25'3-10 Penalty goal - Maxime Machenaud , France
24'
24'Not seen an All Blacks defense been cut open this easily. French half-backs picking players off almost at will. Haven't converted all this possession and pressure into points though.
22'France on the attack again and some slick offloading nearly puts Nakaitaci into space. They come within inches but can't find the decisive pass to break clear.

9'France again on the attack as Camille Lopez is put in space but gets bundled into touch just short of the All Blacks line. What a game!
8'0-7 Conversion - Beauden Barrett , New Zealand

5'Attacking maul for France now as the forwards rumble on, but the All Blacks defense is good and they win another turnover. 3 inside the first five minutes.
4'It's been all France so far. Noa Nakaitaci with a brilliant break down the left hand touch line but can't quite chip the final defender.
2'France on the attack and pilling the pressure on the All Blacks line. Electric start to this game. The All Blacks turn it over though and clear their lines.
