I Know France have rested a few players but if Morgan Parra is playing at scum half that is a huge bonus and I have taken France + 26 for a decent bet.  Without Kieran Reed and Brodie
Retallick the forwards although strong are missing a little bit of nous. France normally play very well in the first games in New Zealand and have been defending very well lately.
Good luck all

Can't believe they still trot out the "mercurial France" thing. That hasn't really been true since the 1990's.
They are generally pretty predictable these days but we live in hope. They did show a few flashes of behind the pack
in the 6 nations at least

yes imo referee has had a good game didnt appear to be giving the All Blacks the usual easy ride they get from a lot of the refs

especially not allowing Smith and Whitelock to get in his ear

France look to be building a very big, strong team who will give trouble to many teams.

Their defence looks more disciplined so they could hang on +26 looking very good

French defence is very good so far, forcing some surprising errors

Once again another game of (international) rugby (with NZ!) is ruined by the ref, it happens in pretty much every game now.

so he gives a yellow for a (French) player clearly hitting the ball (and not any part of neck or face) but even on video when the NZ player clearly hits him in the face (before the other hits him with his head)and only gives a pen?

Have to agree Sewter its a different ref this half. That decision was one of the worst ever seen in international rugby .

How often do we see a ref go straight to his pocket for a single challenge without referring it to the video ref?  Almost unheard of.

but went to the TMO for that obvious no try
By:

i don't think it was a penalty let alone a pen & a card. Still, France shouldn't collapse like that even a man down.

dont blame France at all the All Blacks can do that to any team but the help from the ref was ridiculous
By:

That last try would not have been given if the TMO had a look. Player held, should release

I won on the HC overall, but can't believe I lost on the 40.5 live given when my bet was matched (either just pre-KO or early doors in play)....

game 2 ruined already. if that is a red card the game has gone mental. the french player never takes his eyes off the ball.
ref says he was not in a realistic position to get the ball but he was right underneath it. as he goes to jump
barrett jumps across him so he can't get off the ground. i don't think it was even a yellow, just an unfortunate
incident competing for the ball

I thought it was a stone-waller, TBH.
By:

When: 16 Jun 18 08:59
why? just because of the way barrett landed? there has to have been an intent to injure or reckless play.
i think the french player was in a perfect position to get the ball but barrett has leapt forward and across him
just as he goes to jump.
the idea he is somehow able to get out of there is completely unrealistic, especially as it is cleat he is totally
focused on the ball.

Never ever a red card, this is one of the reasons that NZ are world chapions is they ALWAYS get every decision going.

By:

My interpretation of 'realistic' is that at the instance the French player jumps, based on where Barrett is (he IS going to win the ball), the French player is not in a realistic position to win it.  As such, he has a duty of care to Barrett to make sure he isn't going to hurt him.

As comms have literally just confirmed.
