Highlights - France 12-62 New Zealand

New Zealand's Sam Perrett scored a hat-trick of tries as France crumbled in the second half of their Four Nations encounter in Toulouse.

France were missing six players through illness, injury and suspension from the side beaten by England last weekend.

But they trailed only 16-12 after 42 minutes before conceded eight tries in a one-sided second half in Toulouse.

"We've got Australia next week so it doesn't get any easier," said France coach Bobby Goulding.

Winger Perrett was joined on New Zealand's try-scorers' list by Waerea-Hargreaves (2), Lance Hohaia (2), Junior Sau, Frank Nuuausala, Benji Marshall and Bryson Goodwin, who also kicked nine goals for a personal haul of 22 points.

The Kiwis next meet England in Huddersfield next Saturday.

Sebastien Martins and James Wynne scored France's tries and Thomas Bosc kicked two goals.

Replacements: Moly, A. Bentley, Martins, Gagliazzo.
