New Zealand head coach Graham Henry has kept faith with the team that saw off Australia for the World Cup final against France on Sunday.
Aaron Cruden and Piri Weepu occupy the all-important half-back spots in the continued absence of the injured Dan Carter, with the All Blacks 1/10 with bookmaker to triumph in Auckland.
Most pundits expect New Zealand to win with some ease, but Henry is wary of over-confidence creeping into his players.
He warned: “The word is that France have prepared well and that they’re enjoying the underdogs tag, using it as ammunition.
“We think they’re a very good rugby team with some outstanding players and it’s going to be very difficult.”
France coach Marc Lievremont has named the XV who struggled to see off 14-man Wales in their last-four clash, with Les Bleus 13/2 to win the World Cup on their third appearance in the final.
