All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has hit back at allegations of dirty play from his side in last night's runaway 52‑11 victory over France to open their June international series.
France wing Remy Grosso suffered a reported double fracture to his cheekbone after a second‑half collision with All Blacks flanker Sam Cane and replacement prop Ofa Tu'unag-fasi which the French coach described as "dangerous" and "illegal".
Cane was penalised for the incident, but not yellow‑carded.
All Blacks scored eight tries in the match.
In other matches, the Wallabies broke Ireland’s 11 game winning streak as they overcame them 18 - 9 in Brisbane last night , South Africa secured an excellent 42-39 triumph over England in Johannesburg this morning while Wales defeated Argentina 23-10.
