We are back underway now with the second half. Early French lineout.
The first ten minutes of this second half will tell us a lot. Important for the French to score first.
Savea makes a great leap to retrieve a French kick and the ABs earn a penalty from the resulting play.
Cruden will have a crack from the 10m line.
No good from Cruden once again. A disappointing night with the boot so far from him.
ABs in good position now, spreading the ball through the backs, but Nonu knocks it on.
French scrum on their 10m line. Penalty France.
gold kicking sounds like a painful job.
France run it deep inside the Abs half now. Nyanga makes a powerful blast.
Still with the ball. 10m out now. Penalty France!
They have earned the right to go for three points here and they will go for it.
Lopez kicks the penalty from right infront.
The All Blacks lead 17-13 after 47 minutes.
France earn a penalty and clear for touch. A great opportunity to launch a lineout drive now.
A very scrappy passage of play. France attacked, it was messy, but the ABs ended up knocking it on somewhere in the scrap.
France scrum just inside halfway.
Small break in play here, looks like everyone is catching a breath.
Big final 30 minutes coming up.
Great French scrum and Owen Franks was penalised for the ABs.
43.2m out on a 7.6 angle.
Lopez just misses, wide to the left.
It remains 17-13, 11 minutes into the second half.
Lopez puts up a fantastic wobbly old bomb and Savea has to take it into touch.
Great chance for France. Lineout drive perhaps?
They go to ground 3m out. So close.
France have the momentum, still 1m away.
They had four decent cracks at the line but couldn't break the ABs defence. Ref calls the French advantage though when the ball failed to be released.
Scrumtime, 5m out. Another great chance for the French. If they can get a good hit here they could take the lead.
What a scrum from the ABs.
