New Zealand will celebrate their 500th Test match at AMI Stadium in Christchurch on Saturday with hopes of a sixth consecutive win against France. This weekend's game will only be the second time the All Blacks have played at the Addington venue having hosted Ireland there last year. Indeed it's almost a year to the day that New Zealand were forced to dig very deep to scrape past the Irish tourists 22-19.

That result sparked talks of a possible historic win for the Irish in the third Test a week later, only for the men in green to be obliterated 60-0.

Following last week's close run thing at Eden Park, France have travelled south harbouring similar aspirations to their Six Nations counterparts and, with all due respect to the Irish, the French ambitions are a touch more credible.

A Test series is a bit like a three-round boxing match as the opponents size each other up, react and counteract. We can draw five conclusions from the opening salvo in Auckland:

Date: Saturday, June 22
Venue: AMI Stadium, Christchurch
Kick-off: 19.35 07.35 (GMT)
Weather: 16°C Cloudy but dry
Referee: Alain Rolland (Ireland)
Assistant referees: Wayne Barnes (England), tba (Australia)
Television match official: George Ayoub (Australia)
Assessor: Lyndon Bray

Players to watch:

For New Zealand: Ma'a Nonu and Conrad Smith will combine in the midfield for the 45th time on Saturday, overtaking the tally achieved by the English pairing Will Carling and Jeremy Guscott. Brian O'Driscoll and Gordon D'Arcy of Ireland hold the record, having played a total of 50 Tests as a centre partnership. With Rene Ranger in amazing form and suggestions that a Cruden-Carter 10-12 combo might be the way forward, both midfielders will be keen to show everyone why they have been consistently considered the benchmark for a centre duo for the last four years.

For France: Love him or hate him, Fred Michalak is always sure to leave his mark on a match. PSA obviously has massive confidence in the Toulon scrum-half as he changes his half-back duo yet again. Even Michalak said he was surprised to get picked but he'll know better than most that it usually takes something special to beat the All Blacks. Florian Fritz had a great game last week but with Mathieu Bastareaud back in contention after his late arrival, another top-class performance will be required to keep the blue 13 jersey.

Head-to-head: Just in case you didn't get the point being made above, the return of Nicolas Mas couldn't have come at a better time and he will want to show Wyatt Crockett why he is considered one of the best scrummagers in the game. There is very little between the packs in terms of size. New Zealand will have a 3kg per man weight advantage up front, weighing in at an average 111kg per man.
