Maxime Medard was the only starter who played in that game.Young Gael Fickou scored the first try of the game before debutant Nakaitaci crossed, and by the time he had his second, France had a comfortable 31-3 lead.The Blues were without six All Black players, and chose to rest Ali Williams and Luke Braid, but they showed good character as they fought back with two tries of their own.“We knew it would be a hard game for us because it’s between two Tests and a lot of our players are playing for the French national team for the first time,” said Nyanga. “It wasn’t easy to prepare but we played very well tonight and we’re very happy about the win… now it’s up to the coach to decide.”France play the All Blacks in the second Test in Christchurch on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , Midyear Tours Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?
