France announce November itinerary

Date published: January 17 2017

The All Blacks will face France for the second year in a row after the French announced their Test schedule at home for 2017.

The game will be played on November 11 and will be the first of the November Tests. New Zealand emerged 24-19 winner when the teams met in Paris last year. The All Blacks haven’t lost in France since 2000.

New Zealand will play Scotland on November 18 before clashing with Wales the week after.

France’s assignment against the All Blacks will be followed by Tests against South Africa and Japan, who they will host for the first time in 44 years.
