All Blacks v France score may be closer than thought
The All Blacks kick off their 2018 season at Eden Park tomorrow against France. The New Zealanders are missing several frontline players because of injury, but the French are even more depleted following a heavy European season. France's last win over New Zealand came back in 2009 and pundits here and abroad are picking another All Blacks whitewash for this three-test series. Ian Borthwick is a Paris-based journalist in New Zealand to cover the series. He tells Guyon Espiner you cannot easily predict a final score when France is involved.
