All Blacks' victory over France 'less than convincing'

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 13 November 2017

Despite their twenty point victory over France in Paris on Saturday night (local time), the All Blacks were far from convicing for much of the second half. A brain fade by Sonny Bill Williams saw him sent off with a yellow card after hitting the ball over the dead ball line - a move allowed in his former code of rugby league, but not in union. Later on, a highlight for the All Blacks came when Ryan Crotty scored a historic 2000th test try for the team. The final score was 38-18 to the tourists.
