Kiwis prepare for unknown French

5:33 am on 31 October 2013

The New Zealand Rugy league team has arrived in Avignon the site of Saturday's World Cup clash with France.

The kiwis are hoping for a more consistent performance then Monday's victory over Samoa as are the French, who were lucky to defeat Papua New Guinea 9-8.

Second rower Frank Pritchard says New Zealand will have to carefully analyse the French team as they're unfamiliar their opponents.

Pritchard says the Kiwis are happy to be in the South of France and escape this week's storm in Britain and Europe.
