France will want to get back into the series but I am afraid it will be another All Black test win come Saturday.
The French have now lost 12 matches in a row against the All Blacks and they will want to change that.
The World Champions won last week 52-11 after a yellow card change the game for the All Blacks.
Not that the yellow card change the result as the All Blacks was busy getting control of all aspects of the match by that time.
The problem for the French is that even if the starting fifteen does not play well the All Blacks brings on replacements that destroys teams.
With players like Ben Smith, Rieko Ioane, Anton Lienert-Brown, Jordie and Beaden Barrett it is not easy to get on top of this team.
Despite conceding a half century of points, it wasn’t all doom and gloom in that encounter in Auckland for France, who did well to frustrate the All Blacks for 50 minutes before a controversial yellow card to Paul Gabrillagues changed the complexion of the match.
Prediction: Can not see anything else that All Black win by atleast 18 points

The Aussies surprise the Irish in the first test as they got one over the Six Nations Champions last week.
It is going to be a great test to watch as the Irish will come back with a massive effort to level the series.
Last weekend it was a case of Ireland exerting the majority of the pressure without being able to capitalise on their dominance, whereas the Wallabies soaked up the pressure brilliantly and were much more clinical on the few occasions they got deep into opposition territory.
The Irish side have made some changes and has a much more experienced side, with influential figures including Johnny Sexton, Cian Healy and Devin Toner among others making their return to the starting line-up.
Tadhg Beirne has been named as a replacement and could make his debut should he run out on the field at AAMI Park.
But it is the return of Sexton that should make all the difference for Ireland.
Sexton is more adept at being able to vary his game by either sitting back in the pocket or taking the ball to the line.
The Wallabies, have a settled unit, with Michael Cheika naming the same matchday 23 for the second match in a row for the first time in his tenure.
David Pocock was a real nuisance to the Emerald Isle in the first Test.
Prediction: Ireland will bounce back by 9 point win

Replacements: 16 Tolu Latu, 17 Tom Robertson, 18 Taniela Tupou, 19 Rob Simmons, 20 Lukhan Tui, 21 Pete Samu, 22 Nick Phipps, 23 Reece Hodge
Ireland: 15 Rob Kearney, 14 Andrew Conway, 13 Garry Ringrose, 12 Robbie Henshaw, 11 Keith Earls, 10 Johnny Sexton, 9 Conor Murray, 8 CJ Stander, 7 Dan Leavy, 6 Peter O’Mahony (c), 5 James Ryan, 4 Devin Toner, 3 Tadhg Furlong, 2 Niall Scannell, 1 Cian Healy
