While All Blacks coach Steve Hansen says he will “probably” stick with the same squad, his French counterpart Jacques Brunel is expected to make wholesale changes after their hiding in Auckland last week.
Brunel says: “I hope we will be able to show something else, to be close till the end. I am convinced that will be achieved if we fix our communication problems in defence.”
Hansen, meanwhile, says: “They’ll be hurting. If we were in their shoes we’d certainly be turning up with a fairly staunch attitude and a willingness to really give it a crack and I’m sure that’s what they will do.”
