We are back underway in the second half. France drop the kick off backwards but recover.
The second half starts the same way the first finished, with a kicking war. It ends in a draw with the ABs sending the final kick into touch right on the halfway line.
It has stopped raining, but is still very slippery underfoot. Expect more knock-ons and kicks.
France ask Israel Dagg a question. How good are you under the high ball? Dagg answers in stunning fashion with a huge leap and safe pair of hands.
Hey Steve, we very nearly have the same name. Crazy...
France going close now. 5m away..
Driving maul for France, very close.
Strong ABs defence on the line.
France keep probing, ABs keep holding them out.
The big men are trying to shunt it over.
France still with it.. still 2m out..
France line up a droppy.... charged down.
WOW, what a try. From one end to the other. Ben Smith finished off an 80 yard try after the ABS charged down a French kick.
Savea broke free and found Smith in support to stroll over the line untouched.
But it was their defence that earned the try. They had an iron curtain on the goaline and wouldn't let France through.
One of the great All Blacks tries.
Cruden slots the conversion from right infront.
50 MINS - ALL BLACKS 17 FRANCE 0
Just under 30 minutes to play in this one and that passage of play was game defining. The ABs were so close to having the lead cut to three, but instead, in an instant blew it out to 17.
Cruden increases the All Blacks lead to 20 points with his second penalty of the night from out infront.
54 MINS - ALL BLACKS 20 FRANCE 0
See below and above Suzzanne.
Yes, he missed one kick tonight.
Julian Savea looks incredible as he breaks at great pace through the French midfield. But his pass doesn't match the run, and it dribbles low to Smith who knocks the ball on.
