France versus New Zealand, 1968

France versus New Zealand, 1968

This imaginatively designed programme reflecting the respective uniform colours of the two countries was the official programme for the third test in Auckland on 10 August 1968. Games between France and New Zealand have usually been entertaining and the French have upset the All Blacks on a number of occasions. However, the All Blacks won this match 19–12.
