We are back underway and neither side has made any changes.
Aaron Smith field the French kick off and bangs it away down into French territory.
France break down the right flank and break a few tackles but Dagg strips the ball and sends a long raking pass back to Jane.
He clears downfield, France kick back and the recovering ABs defenders were caught offside. Hope that wasn't too complicated to follow. Long story short, France penalty.
And Parra slots it. France lead 12-9.
43 MINS - ABs 9 FRANCE 12
France infringe at the breakdown and Carter has a chance to level things once again.
Carter's kick is good. 12-12.
What a try. Out of nothing.
They spun the ball wide right to Ben smith in their own half, he kicked in behind and Charles Piutau won the foot race. He kicked ahead again and the ball landed perfectly for him in goal.
What speed from Piutau. Lightning quick.
Carter's conversion is good. ABs lead 19-12.
48 MINS - ABs 19 FRANCE 12
ABs full of life now. Here they go again, mounting pressure deep in the French half.
So close. Nonu puts a well-weighted kick in behind, Piutau dives but first impressions are he didn't quite make it in time.
We are checking upstairs.
The ball is judged to have been in touch. Lineout France.
French knock-on called now. ABs scrum from 5m out. Great chance for the ABs.
Penalty France! Interesting call. ABs are pinged for a foul on their attacking scrum.
Change for the ABs, Cruden coming on for Carter.
An exciting, scrappy period of play ends with a French knock on 20m out from their line. The tempo has picked up here, some good running rugby taking place now.
Carter has gone straight to the ice pack on the bench. Sings indicate he was withdrawn through injury.
Nonu crashes through the 22. Penalty advantage All Blacks.
No advantage, ABs come back to the penalty. Cruden will line up his first kick.
Carter had a perfect kicking game. Can Cruden continue the trend?
Cruden sends his kick wide right. The score remains 19-12.
