France versus New Zealand 

France have not beaten the All Blacks in France in 16 years and will be hoping that some Les Blues magic will take them to a famous victory.  The All Blacks have been in unbelievable form this year and, besides a little upset of losing to Ireland, they have been miles ahead of every other international side.  They will be looking to secure their 21st victory in their last 22 games.
