Kerr Barlow comes on for Aaron Smith and Rene Ranger comes on for Israel Dagg.
Two excitement machines for the ABs.
Back to scrumtown. A knockon from the French means we are back.
ABs lose the ball in midfield, France kick the lose ball in goal but Ben Smith wins the race to touch it down in goal.
68 mins gone. All Blacks leading 20-13.
France with good possession, but they kick to heavy and it lands in goal. They need to make more happen from their attacking opportunities now. 10 to go.
Into the final ten now and not many thought it would still be this close. But the French are still very much in this. They need to try things.
Michalak has his kick charged down but Nonu is judged to be offside. Lopez kicks for touch with the penalty but it doesn't reach touch.
Eight to go.. France with the ball on halfway.
Big hit by Savea, and the ABs turn it over.
Nonu finds some space, clears it wide to Ranger and the ABs are away.
A gruesome hit in midfield there by Huget on Ranger. Huget's night is over I dare say. I think he's asleep.
Cruden slots the penalty from right infront increasing the lead to 10.
Five minutes to go, the All Blacks lead 23-13.
Fofana clears into touch and time is running out. It looks like this one is over unless there is a French miracle instore.
The clock is ticking. Just over three minutes to go and we are waiting for a scrum. Theme of the night.
The crowd is loving it. The action has definitely heated up since Ranger came on. A real favourite with the Auckland crowd.
