1987 – France vs Fiji

1987 – Quarter-Finals

France 31 – Fiji 16

France have made it through to the quarter-finals, where they’ll play the All Blacks in Cardiff.

In 1987, France who were the eventual finalists had to get past Fiji at the quarter-final stage. This highlight reel showcases that game from a remarkably empty Eden Park,  and features some fantastic running rugby from the Fijians, as well as thousands of New Zealanders at an outdoor event sans hats.

The commentary is of course the recognizable tones of the legendary Bill Mclaren.
