All Blacks coach Ian Foster has named his side to face France for the final test of the year at Stade de France in Paris on Sunday morning 9am. There are seven changes from the side that lost to Ireland last week, with two of them forced due to injury. Beauden Barrett suffered a head knock and has been replaced by Richie Moúnga, while Anton Leinert-Brown's shoulder injury has seen Quinn Tupaea start ahead of David Havili at second five. Other changes see Aaron Smith in at halfback in place of TJ Perenara, Sam Cane and Akira Ioane in for Dalton Papalii and Ethan Blackadder, Dane Coles in for Codie Taylor, and George Bridge in for Sevu Reece on the left wing.
