The players are now making their way back onto the field as the French PA tries to get the home crowd back into it with a series of chants and encouragement.
Kiwis kick deep down to Jamal Fakir and we are underway.
Early penalty against the Kiwis for holding on in the tackle.
Good set from the French but ultimately they come up short. The ball is spun wide on the final tackle to Fakir but he is wrestled short of the line by some smothering Kiwi defence.
Another disappointing end to a French set of six as their final kick ends up skewing off behind the line of the chasers. Kiwis scoop up the loose ball through Pritchard and break down the field.
Once again the Kiwis put the ball down. This time it was a Johnson inside ball to Locke, but the fullback over ran it and the ball went down.
What ever the Kiwis do the French can do better? Duport puts a sitter down in the middle of the field for the French. Kiwis scrum.
The Kiwis have completed only two of their sets since halftime and their completion rate is about to dip below 80 per cent. The errors are mounting (9) and pressure non-existant
Issac Luke did the damage and Shaun Johnson was quick in support to touch down under the posts. Luke broke the line, drew the defenders and managed to squeeze out a pass to Johnson who was too quick for the recovering defenders.
Johnson adds the conversion from right in front. Kiwis 24 France 0.
The Kiwis have defended well today, holding out the French from close range on a number of occasions.
It's that combo again, Issac Luke and Shaun Johnson tear the French defence apart.
Luke made his way from the right to the left, stepped, beat his marker and slipped a pass to Johnson who dotted down. The Kiwis have come alive.
Johnson adds two more and the Kiwis now lead by 30.
Kiwis get the ball down in the corner through Bryson Goodwin but he just clipped the touchline on the way down.
The Kiwis just lost their way infront of goal. They had been probing around 10m out for a few minutes but couldn't make the breakthrough and eventually knocked the ball on. 18 minutes to play now.
Greg Eastwood this time. Kasiano charged at the line, drew three French defenders and offloaded to Eastwood who muscled his way over the line.
Johnson makes it six from six with the boot. Kiwis lead 36-0.
Johnson overcooks a grubber kick this time for the Kiwis and the ball smashes into the billboard surrounding the field.
The French crowd have gone very silent now. I guess that's what happens when your team has had six un-answered tries scored on them.
Into the last ten minutes now and France have the ball deep in their half. The home crowd are desperate to see their side get on the board, but the longer the game goes on the less likely that looks.
It's all happening now. Tuivasa-Sheck breaks down the right hand flank for the Kiwis, throws the ball back in-field to Baile, who knocks the ball on (but the refs don't call it), it's scooped up by Bentley who sprints the length of the field before being tackled by Locke. No tries but plenty of action.
Nu'uausala touches down for the seventh try of the match through some pretty tired French tackles.
Shaun Johnson has just been awarded the man of the match award. Issac Luke must feel pretty hard done by there. For me, he has been the star tonight.
Johnson has had a perfect kicking game. Seven from seven from the tee, two tries and a beauty cross field kick for the Kiwis' first try.
