France have hammered the All Blacks 40-25 in a pulsating game in Paris.

Despite a second half come back from New Zealand, France held on to win against the all Blacks for the first time since 2009.

First-half tries from Peato Mauvaka and Romain Ntamack gave France a deserved 24-6 lead at the break.

However, the All Blacks fought back in the second half with tries to Jordie Barrett and Rieko Ioane to trail by just two points with 20 minutes remaining.

But an incredible Ntamack counter-attack followed by Damian Penaud’s interception try sealed a historic win for the hosts.

France will face New Zealand at the Stade de France in the opening game of the 2023 World Cup.

The result was a disappointing end of season game for the All Blacks. With last weeks loss to Ireland, it is only the second time in the last decade they have had back-to-back defeats.
