NZ All Blacks Season Opener Against France At Eden Park, Auckland

Here we go again! Test rugby season is on again and culminating in the Rugby World Cup (RWC) in September 2007.

2007 RWC host nation France played the All Blacks at Eden Park, Auckland last Saturday and Bernard Laporte's side came away knowing their work will be cut out for them come September. As expected, the All Blacks won but the 42-11 scoreline belies the 77% territorial domination in the scrappy season opener that promises the return to last year's awesome form as the season progresses.

The All Blacks ran in 5 tries against Le Bleus on a night that saw icons Dan Carter and Ritchie McCaw taken off at half-time.
