The All Blacks made light work of France in the end this morning thanks to seven second-half tries at Eden Park in their opening Test match.
France took an early lead through a Remy Grosso intercept. With 50 minutes on the clock the two sides were tied 11-11. But a controversial yellow for France lock Paul Gabrillague soon after changed everything.
The floodgates soon opened and the All Blacks ran out 52-11 winners, scoring some truly sublime tries.
But there was more controversy late in the game when replacement prop Ofa Tuungafasi landed a very dangerous high hit with his shoulder. Should he have seen red? Have a look below.
Can’t really be getting these calls wrong anymore. Definite red. pic.twitter.com/oUnWUqiM8s
