New Zealand vs France live streaming takes place on Friday 1st November at 8:00pm on home soil for France, at the Parc Des Sports, Avignon. France have given New Zealand a scare on home turf before, almost beating them in Paris in 2007 before eventually losing 14-22. They have some pedigree in the world cup going back further than that too – they were runners up twice during the 1950s and 60s. Of course, New Zealand are reigning champions and are ranked 2nd in the world. They are a powerhouse of rugby league and some people believe this is their best ever squad. But France gets great support from its home fans, and an upset may be be on the cards.

The emergence of French club side Catalans Dragons as a major force in Super League, much more so recently than they were even during the 2008 world cup era, has meant that France may have higher expectations than they did before. Many of the players for that club, who are regularly sniffing around the top third of the table and the latter stages of the play-offs for the Grand Final, are French. This includes Thomas Bosc, their captain and field kicker, who will be essential for France. Australian born Jason Baitieri is a great young talent in the forwards at only 23. He, along with another youngster Eloi Pelissier, is another Catalans and now France star to watch out for during New Zealand vs France live streaming.
