New Zealand squared the series with the World XV, winning 54-26 at Wellington in the second Test of the NZRU’s Centenary celebrations.

Roumat was the eighth Frenchman to be sent off in international rugby and was handed a four-week ban by the IRB which was increased to six months by the French federation’s president, Bernard Lapasset.
