I am gradually losing my interest in test rugby and I used to believe it was a personal thing but these series against France have been really awful to watch.

Am I the only one?

In the first test, the expected pattern: France being able to front up until the 50th minute. The yellow card was only an excuse, the All Blacks would have run away with it anyway.
In the second test, the worst of the series, the All Blacks could never lose after the red card, but still they did not play well.
The third test was actually the best of the series, but alas, only for 40 minutes.

The inevitability of each All Blacks victory and the knowledge that they would eventually run away with it in the second half... Eventually I was only interested in seeing the new faces: How McKenzie goes at 10, how Goodhue performed (a bit wobbly in defense, I'd say), I liked Scot Barrett at lock and I absolutely loved Taylor in the first test...

But I felt there was nothing exciting about it, just another ABs thrashing on the cards...

Ok I see what your saying. I thought you may have been talking about the quality of the rugby played but France were looking to attack with their backs and only played with moderate amounts of kicking. Main problem was that France played very well in parts for each of the 3 games but just couldn't put it together long enough in any one game.
